Speaking during the Mid-Year-Budget-Review at parliament in Accra on Thursday 29 July 2021, Ken Ofori-Atta said “Government transformational agenda is on cause”.

But, Deputy Minority Leader Dr. James Klutse Avedzi says “presentation by the Finance Minister shows that economy is struggling. They have lost the debate

In a sharp reaction, Chairman of Finance Committee of Parliament and former Deputy Finance Minister Kwaku Kwarteng insists a collapsed economy cannot finance free SHS.
