Minority boycotts vetting of deputy minister-designate for Trade and Industry

The Minority in Parliament has indicated that they will not participate in the vetting of the deputy minister-designate for Trade and Industry. According to them, President Akufo-Addo’s nomination suggests his “lack of appreciation of the economic mess that his government has unleashed on Ghanaians as a result of its bad economic policies.”

“We are again unable to support this nomination by President Akufo-Addo at this time because our country has gone through (and continues to go through) very difficult periods, including crippling economic crisis, food insecurity, debt default as a result of excessive borrowing, corruption in government and wasteful and reckless expenditures.

“With ordinary Ghanaians going through excruciating hardships and businesses relocating from Ghana as a result of the high tax regime created by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government, one would have expected the President to downsize his already large government,” the Minority leader, Ato Forson stated. He continued: “This would have sent a signal to the people that the President was mindful of the economic realities and was willing to do things differently to restore the needed confidence in the economy.”
