Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has revealed that the Akufo-Addo led administration will ensure it does not over spend beyond the year 2020 budget.
The Finance Minister  presenting the national budget for 2020 on Tuesday, said  the government  will ensure that it stays within its budget next year despite 2020 being election year.
“Inspite of the year being an election year, let me repeat that President Akufo-Addo and his government will ensure that the perennial excessive spending during such periods will not happen in 2020. We shall work within the 2020 Appropriated Resource envelope and adhere to the Fiscal Responsibility Act to maintain fiscal discipline.”
“We will do so not because we are complacent of our chances, no. We will do so because the nation needs it and we are not prepared to throw the sacrifices the people and the government have made in the last three years. We shall consolidate our macro economic gains and offer businesses and households the creditability and stability that they need to manage their works.”
“2020 is an election year. I will like to take this opportunity to inform this August House on behalf of the President that all the needed resources required shall be marshaled for the Electoral Commission to ensure that we have a free credible and fair election. Ghana remains one of the most peaceful elections in the world and we intend to maintain it.”
