Finance Minister Appeals For 100gh A Month From Ghanaians To Build Cathedral

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has revealed that an initiative dubbed “100-cedis-a-month club” will be launched on August 12, to enable Ghanaians contribute to the construction of the National Cathedral.

According to him, the initiative, dubbed, “Ketewa biara nsua”, will provide members of the general public an opportunity to share the cost and be part of a historical event, i.e, the construction of a national cathedral.

“An initiative – the 100-Cedis-a-Month Club, also dubbed “Ketewa biara nsua” – would be launched by the Trustees of the National Cathedral on 12th August 2021, to give as many Ghanaians as possible the opportunity to be part of the history to build the National Cathedral,” he said.

Presenting the 2021 Mid-Year review Budget Statement and Economic Policy on Thursday, July 29, Mr Ofori-Atta, therefore, urged all, including Members of Parliament, to be part of the one million Ghanaians projected to support the government with GH₵100 a month.

“The aim of the Club is to mobilise one million Ghanaians who will give 100 Cedis a month towards the construction of the National Cathedral.

“We look forward to Mr Speaker and members of this august House joining the 100-Cedis-a-Month Club, and thus adding their names to the historic coalition that would build the National Cathedral to the glory of God, and the edification of our nation and its people,” he entreated.

National Cathedral: Ghanaians Reacts To Finance Minister’s ‘100gh A Month’ Club

Some social media users expressed displeasure over government’s call on Ghanaians to support the construction of a National Cathedral, to be commissioned on March 6, 2024, with GH₵100 a month.

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, while presenting the 2021 Mid-Year review Budget Statement and Economic Policy on Thursday urged all, including Members of Parliament, to be part of the one million Ghanaians projected to support the initiative dubbed, “Ketewa biara nsua” with GH₵100 a month.

He noted Ghanaians could support the noble cause by dialing the short code *979#.

But this call, according to some Ghanaians, is misplaced. They say the government should rather look at raising revenue to improve the health and education sectors as well as provide Ghanaians with good roads and other social amenities rather than building a national cathedral.

For them, the aforementioned issues are matters that government should rally financial support for.

NDC's MPs Vote Against 2022 Budget As Parliament Reject It

News gathered by GhArticles.com indicates that the 2022 year budget dubbed “Agyenkwa Budget” has been rejected by the House of Parliament.

The budget which was debated on today and voted for had 137 against it and 0 votes for it’s approval.

This means that the new policies introduced by government for 2022 can not be implemented.

In a report filed by Mynewsghana.com, the Minority had requested the Finance Minister to scrape the E-Levy and make provisions for the Ketu sea defense project.

Though members of the majority were absence from the chamber for almost four hours, they came back after a call from the minority to Ghanaians to call on their MPs to part take in the debate and voting.

However, after debating the budget, the Minister of Finance appeared before the house and prayed on the Speaker to put on hold the approval of the budget for further consultation with leaders of both side but was met with rejection as those who said No were approved by the Speaker.

After the approval on the NOs the deputy majority leader rose up and called out the speaker for not pronouncing the right judgement.

He prayed on the Speaker to rely on ‘Division’ in order 114. Subsequent to the implementation of order 114, the majority walked out of the chamber, after the Speaker ordered ministers who are not MPs to leave the House as stated in order 114.

This led to their side recording zero (0) when the Speaker returned to assume proceedings after recusing the House for 5 minutes. It must be noted that this is the first time a budget is being rejected in the fourth Republic.

Keep Quiet, Gov't Is Responding To Pressure To Build More Infrastructure - Information Minister Tells Ghanaians

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Information Minister has descended on Ghanaians who are criticizing the government over the new taxes introduced in the 2022 budget to aid in building more infrastructure in the country.

According to him, Ghanaians are always on the streets of the country protesting against lack of roads, lack of infrastructure and other issues.

Addressing the Parliament in their recent meeting, the Information Minister said the government is responding to the pressure from Ghanaians to build more infrastructure in the country in the coming years.

He further noted that MPs tell people in their constituency they are going to Parliament to fight for infrastructure for their area and so believes the new taxes will help government to achieve this dream.

“Everyday we demonstrations in all our constituencies asking for more roads, everyday we see more calls on government to spend money on more infrastructure. Mr Speaker the government has responded by making available in the 2022 budget GHS16billion for infrastructure,” Kojo Nkrumah said.

He said this is another good reason for all Ghanaians to support the government’s agenda.

Earlier on GhArticles.com reported that, the government, as part of strategies to widen the country’s tax net, has announced an Electronic Transaction Levy.

It will be a 1.75 percent charge on all electronic transactions.

This fee, according to the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, is to enhance financial inclusion and protect the vulnerable.

Transactions covering mobile money payments, banks transfers, merchant payments, and inward remittances will have the levy imposed on them and will be borne by the sender.

However, the levy will be waived for transactions that amount to GHS 100 or less in a day or approximately GHS 3,000 per month.

The government says portions of revenue collected from the levy will be used to support entrepreneurship, youth employment, cybersecurity, digital, and road infrastructure among others.
