First of all, I should commend and applaud the efforts of the minister. I must say he has done very well in his position if all analysts would be objective about it. However, there were some items he mentioned in the list that I thought were too redundant to include in a national budget. Most especially, when one adds provision of free uniforms as an achievement in national budget.
Ghana as a country has grown pass that stage where the citizenry is taken for granted. The people in the country should feel insulted that a national government, past or present would boast of providing free uniforms as an achievement. Some might argue that for a developing nation it is quite significant. I, on the other hand beg to differ. There are too many important things that the tax payer should expect from the government.
Issues such as national security, major educational reforms, developmental projects which in the long run will raise the per capita income of labour force in the country. These are things we should be fighting for; not mediocre politics.
Once again, I would like to congratulate the minister for such a wonderful job in office so far. Inflation has been stable for the past three years, domestic currency has being stable in the forex market for a long time. Macroeconomic stability of the nation is commendable. But please Mr Minister. Do not insult the intelligence of Ghanaians when reading the budget with petty achievements which is being duplicated by individuals all over the country.
P.S. IT IS A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT FOR AN INDIVIDUAL TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR PROVIDING FREE SCHOOL UNIFORMS FOR THE WHOLE NATION, HOWEVER, ITS A JOKE AN THE PART OF A NATIONAL GOVERNMENT TO BOAST OF SUCH FEAT
