A prominent member of the New Patriotic Party, Gabby Asare Octhere-Darko has taken to Twitter to plea with the minority in Parliament not to boycott the 2023 Budget Reading which is scheduled for Thursday, November 24, 2022 in Parliament.

In the tweet, Mr. Okyere Darko, “Thursday’s 2022 budget is crucial. It can’t suffer a fate similar to the 2022 budget and its revenue measures. It could completely derail negotiations with the Fund if not passed. Critical to this are its revenue generation measures. We plead the NDC joins NPP in this for Ghana”, he said.

The Budget which is expected to be read by the Finance Minister is at the verge of rejection, as, inside sources hint of a possible boycott by both sides of Parliament, but, the National Executives and the Council of Elders of the New Patriotic, NPP have stepped in to resolve the impasse between the Party Members and the Majority Caucus and the President over the demands for the sacking of the Finance Minister.
