Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a Member of Parliament for North Tongu, has outlined some of the things he anticipates from the Akufo-Addo-led government in 2022.

Mr Ablakwa believes President Akufo-Addo would listen to the overwhelming majority of Ghanaians in the New Year, including experts, civil society organizations, religious bodies, and political parties, “who are all rightfully urging that he jettisons the obnoxious and highly inflammable E-Levy.”

Instead of the “insensitive E-Levy,” Mr Ablakwa proposes that the government undertake aggressive spending cuts.

He wants the government to cut the GHS3.1 billion allocated to the Office of Government Machinery (OGM), drastically reduce the near GHS1 billion set aside as Contingency Vote, halt projects such as the new Accra International Conference Centre, which is estimated to cost €116 million, halt the proposed five STEM universities, abandon the Abuakwa Standard Stadium, Regional Art Theatres, New Embassies, Boankra Green Technology City, and Tourism Village, among others.

In a Facebook post, the North Tongu lawmaker stated that President Akufo-Addo must abandon his “obstinate charter of ultra-luxury US14,000 per hour executive jets and make good use of our Presidential Jet, which remains in pristine condition.” He should hand over the LX-DIO to its owners, Global Jet Luxembourg.”

He also wants President Akufo-Addo to reveal the full cost of his air travels in the interest of transparency, accountability, and respect for Ghanaians, as “his continuous unjustifiable concealment will only trigger further action from our end.”
