Mr. Andy Appiah Kubi, the spokesperson for the 98 Majority New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament, has given notice that the group is still calling for the dismissal of the finance minister following the introduction of the 2023 budget.

The Ashanti Region’s Asante Akim Central Constituency Member of Parliament (MP) stated that they anticipate the president upholding the timelines for the removal of the minister once the budget’s appropriations have been completed.

According to the Majority group’s spokeswoman, they agreed with the president to have the finance minister move the motion for the budget and the appropriations made in accordance with the roadmap.

So, he continued, “now that the budget motion has been introduced, we want the president to do his part by adhering to the timeline to meet our request to have the finance minister withdrawn.”

“We expect the president to uphold his end of the bargain,” he said.

“As MPs, we were merely showing respect to the President, and now that the budget resolution has been moved, we expect a reciprocal gesture toward us when we complete the allocations,” a member of the legislature said.

He rejected the notion that this is the primary cause of the absence of many Majority MPs from the floor’s budget discussion.
