President Nana Akufo-Addo has extolled caretaker Finance Minister, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu for his budget statement presentation.
The Suame Member of Parliament and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs on Friday, March 12, 2021, took the stead of Finance Minister-Designate, Ken Ofori-Atta to read the budget on the Floor of Parliament.
His presentation follows the inability of Mr Ofori-Atta to return to Ghana on time from his medical leave in the United States.
The 2021 budget, titled the Won Ya who hiee was on the theme, ‘Economic Revitalisation through Completion, Consolidation & Continuity.’
The over three-hour-long presentation touched mainly on the effects of the coronavirus on the economy and post covid recovery plans.

“Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu read the budget as if he does it every year;” he lauded.
