Ghanaians Express Expectations From Today's Budget Statement

With few hours to the presentation of the 2020 budget statement to Ghana’s Parliament, Ghanaians have expressed different expectations from government.

The Finance minister, Ken Ofori Atta is expected in Parliament about 10 am on Wednesday, 13th November 2019 to present the budget statement to Parliament for the 2020 year as the constitution mandate government.

However, it seems most of the people are looking forward to the scrapping of taxes on LPG, reduction of utility tariff among many others, which will lessen the plight of ordinary Ghanaians.

"We want the government to reduce prices of gas, light and water bills and also stop increasing fuel prices because it affects transport fares to go up" a section of the public told Bryt FM news.

Others were also worried about the poor road networks across the country but are expecting the Finance Minister would touch on what is being done to deal with the challenges due to its enormous challenges on the economy.

"People are crying every day concerning the bad roads in the country so we hope the minister will talk about what the government is doing about that. The President is from the Eastern Region so we expect him to fix the deplorable roads in the region" some interviewees lamented.
