Budget approval: Your bad precedent will haunt you one day – Minority to Majority

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has said that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmakers have set a bad precedence following the approval of the 2022 budget statement without the minority.

The Tamale South MP said the decision of the Majority would come back to haunt them in future.

The Minority rejected the assurance by the Finance Ken Ofori Atta that their concerns on the 2022 budget would be addressed at the committee level.

Haruna Iddrisu that they wanted their concerns captured in the original budget statement and not to be discussed at the committees’ sittings.

“If you are acknowledging and admitting that there were concessions, let it reflect in the statement” and not a meeting at the committee level.

He further stated that the Minority will oppose to the E-levy proposal in its current any day and anytime.

“We don’t support the E-levy in its current. Our point is to revise it to take care of the ordinary people.”

Form tomorrow every other decisions of parliament we will insist on head counts

“If this is the way they want us to walk we are capable to walk with them.”

He added “They have set and precedent that will come and haunt them in future.”
