Parliament has rejected the 2022 budget statement presented on behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo by his Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, on Wednesday, November 17.
The Majority members had staged a walkout during proceedings on Friday, November 26 but that did not stop the Speaker, Alban Bagbin, from ruling on the motion.
He had given a five-minute break for the Majority of members to resume their seats.
But after the time elapsed, Mr Bagbin ruled that the budget has been rejected after the members present overwhelmingly shouted ‘No’.
It’s at the back of the 2020 budget rejection that The BBC Ghana has been reliably informed that gov’t workers especially teachers to receive November salary in January due to the budget rejection.
The information was made known by one Poko Poko who works with one of the gov’t ministries.
