Dead Goat 2016 Budget Lacks Inspiration – Minority

The minority in parliament have disregarded the government’s budget statement for 2016, describing it as one that lacks inspiration and is of detrimental support to a struggling economy.

Minority leader Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu in seconding the motion to adjourn sitting, after Finance minister, Seth Terkper presented the budget statement to parliament, said it was ‘a dead goat budget’.

This position, as he stated, was a clear reflection of what the minority pre-conditioned their minds to expect.

While Mr. Mensah-Bonsu was talking, sitting MPs from the minority side held hand-posters that had ‘Dead Goat Budget’ written on them.

‘This is a dead goat budget,’ they all said in support of their leader’s comment.

Mr. Mensah-Bonsu also said the budget was ‘full of perspiration’ and betrays the trust of Ghanaians.

The 2016 Budget is themed: ‘Consolidating Progress towards a Brighter Medium Term’ and was delivered on the floor of parliament by minister Terkper on Friday, November, 13 2015.
