Kweku George Ricketts-Hagan, the member of parliament for Cape Coase South, expressed surprise when the finance minister presented the 2023 budget in the face of opposition.

He claimed that he was astounded by the minister’s ability to find his way and read the budget.

“The fact that Ken Ofori-Atta was reading the budget caught me completely off guard. I had previously claimed that Ken Ofori-Atta’s ability to read the budget would rank among the seven wonders of the world. It is truly amazing how he has been able to navigate his way through, in any jurisdiction, he shouldn’t be the one reading the budget,” he is quoted as saying by 3news.com.

“Miracles have been made for Ofori-Atta to be appointed finance minister,” he insisted.

Ken Ofori-Atta, the minister of finance, was present in the House to perform his constitutional duty of presenting the government budget.

The presentation was made in compliance with Section 21 of the Public Financial Management Act of 2016 and Article 179 of the 1992 Constitution (Act 921).

Both inside and outside of his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ken Ofori-Atta has faced a great deal of criticism and demand to resign or be fired by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

However, the President had asked the NPP members to give the Minister permission to present the 2023 budget and to wrap up talks with the IMF.
