2019 Budget: What should be in the budget?


Government has indicated that the 2019 budget to be delivered by the Minister of Finance on Thursday, November 15 will “bring more relief, hope and improvement in the standard of living of our people”.

The budget is expected to be tthe first post-IMF budge as the country gets ready to exit the extended credit facility (ECF) entered into in 2015.

Addressing journalists on Wednesday, Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah stated that Cabinet completed a review of the budget over the weekend.

“[The budget] will mark the beginning of Ghana’s exit from the IMF programme under which we sought some $900 million over a three-year period.”

Mr Oppong-Nkrumah assured all and sundry that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is bent on consolidating the gains made.

The question we ask is, are you cool with the Government exiting from the IMF programme? What are your expectations? Leave your comments below;
