Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori Atta

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has just walked into a joint caucus meeting being held in parliament by both sides of the House.

The meeting, according to sources is to ensure consensus on the 2022 budget statement and economic policy of the government.

The Minority wants the government to withdraw the Agyapa deal and suspend the proposed 1.75% e-levy. The Minority has also advocated for proper reconstruction of paragraph 829 of the Aker Energy deal relating to GNPC’s acquisition of stake from Aker Energy and AGM Petroleum.

In addition to these, the Minority wants government to review the benchmark value for imports as well as provide for the Keta tidal waves disaster among others.

It is however unclear if a revised budget would be presented today or Parliament will use its own processes to deal with the matter.
