The minister of finance, Ken Ofori-Atta has called on Ghanaians to support the 2022 National budget as it is aimed that investing heavily in youth entrepreneurship.
There has been an uproar and public dissent since the reading of the 2022 National budget by the finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta on the floor of parliament as it was indicated that Government will be introducing new taxes on electronic transactions which has been kicked against by majority of Ghanaians
The finance minister is however saying that Ghanaians should support for the budget to be approved by parliament as the budget seeks to invest heavily in getting the youth to venture into entrepreneurship.
“Help get the budget so that we see more of the Siaws, the Sikkens, and the Owusus’ and encourage our youth to participate in this risky venture of becoming entrepreneurs. So this forms the primary reason why the 2022 budget is anchored on building an entrepreneurial nation.”
“Essentially, the budget is a clarion call for all citizens to support the trust of the government’s direction in the medium-term of promoting entrepreneurship.”
Government seeks to invest heavily in youth entrepreneurship using the 2022 National budget as a medium in a bid to arrest the growing rate of unemployment in the country.
