- The politician argues issues of corruption must be tackled in the 2018 budget
Former presidential hopeful, Akua Donkor, has shared her expectations ahead of the 2018 budget.
Finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta says the 2018 budget will be aimed at increasing revenue for the economy as well as boosting investor confidence but Akua Donkor has a different expectation from the budget.
According to her, she is expecting the budget to address the complexity of the digital address system saying it is "killing her".
“I can’t read or write, so if you say, I should use the mobile phone to get my address, how can I do that, then you want to kill me and my other mates as well. We used to give directions to people with either our mouth or hands, even sometimes trees and people are able to locate that,” she revealed.
Also, Akua Donkor says she hopes the budget will turn away all illegal miners in the country.
The finance minister has revealed that the 2018 budget will aid in government's industrialization agenda. He is, therefore, calling for the establishment of an enterprise culture that encourages entrepreneurship.
