Finance minister presents first budget today

The Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta is expected to present the first 2017 budget of the Akufo- Addo’s government on Thursday March 2, 2017 in Parliament.

The minister is expected to explain to Ghanaians how the government intends to fund its promised policies especially the free SHS policy, salary and wages, fuel reduction, one-district-one factory policy and others.

The minority have argued that there is no need for the government to implement the free SHS policy indicating that parents should be made to pay their own children’s fees expect those who cannot afford.

Industry players, business owners, investors are likely to be glued to their radio and television sets to listen and watch the minister speak on measures put in place to solve the ‘crippling’ economy.
