Akufo-Addo's ministers Osafo-Maafo, Owusu Afriyie Akoto sleep at 2020 Budget reading

Minister for FinanceKen Ofori-Atta presented the 2020 Budget Statement and Economic Policy of government to Parliament on Wednesday, November 13, 2019.

The budget statement outlined government's measures to raise more revenue to finance infrastructural and developmental projects.

A lot of talking points have come out of the budget reading, one of which has been the photos of some top ministers in the Akufo-Addo government dozing off which have gone viral.

The two ministers who were captured sleeping are Senior Minister Yaw Osafo-Maafo and Agric Minister Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto.

In Afriyie Akoto's case, the photo sighted by YEN.com.gh shows him in a black suit sleeping off with his face in the air.

Osafo-Maafo, on the other hand, was seen in a suit and tie and sitting straight but sleeping.

The photos which have been trending on social media since they popped up come just a few weeks after President Akufo-Addo was accused of sleeping at the Russia-Africa Summit.
