On Tuesday, November 30, Madina lawmaker Francis-Xavier Sosu reacted to Parliament’s acceptance of the 2022 budget statement.
“The House has adopted the Financial statement and approved the budget statement for the next year ending 31st December 2022,” stated the First Deputy Speaker, who filled in for Speaker Alban Bagbin, during the adoption of the budget in Parliament after the minority boycotted sittings.
“The budget and economic statement have been adopted by this house,” he said.
Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, the Majority Leader in Parliament, has advised him to ignore the alleged rejection of the 2022 budget declaration.
On Tuesday, November 30, Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu argued on the House floor that the budget’s rejection “did not fulfill the standard established under Article 104,” because Parliament lacked the required number of members in the house to take decisions.
“Elections have repercussions,” Sosu tweeted in response to this event.
You are not a victim but an accomplice if you vote for a corrupt administration.
“We did our best to stand by Ghanaians and defend their position on the budget, but the administration is hell-bent on inflicting misery and mysery on the people of Ghana.”
