Parliament has rejected the 2022 budget which was presented by the Minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta last week Wednesday, 17 November 2021.

Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Murtala Mohammed, had argued that approving the budget is equivalent to sending Ghanaians to their graves. He explained that the 2022 budget is full of “inconsistencies and half-truths”.

The Majority members had staged a walkout during proceedings on Friday,26 November,  but that did not stop the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, from ruling on the motion.

The Speaker of Parliament had given a five-minute break for the Majority members to resume their seats.

But after a time delay, the Speaker of Parliament ruled that the 2022 budget has been rejected after the members present overwhelmingly shouted ‘No’!.
