Kwesi Pratt attacks finance minister for "preaching Christ" in 2017 budget

Kwesi Pratt in a radio commentary has hit hard against finance minister, Ken Ofori Attah for using the name of Jesus in the budget presentation, describing the minister's move as "unfortunate".

The finance minister in his first ever budget presentation was heard making key references to the scriptures; " Mr. Speaker, I see our nation with this overwhelming election mandate as all having decided to withdraw in unison like Jesus to a remote place, Mr. Speaker, only to discover that we have five loaves of bread and two fishes to feed our 25 million plus fellow citizens," he read.

The minister also went on to reveal that "with 5 loaves and 2 fishes, President Akufo-Addo’s budget has tackled the five structural pillars of revenue, expenditure, earmarked funds, labour and our debt.”

This Kwesi Pratt finds troubling, according to Kwesi Pratt, such conduct must not be encouraged.

“We have Ghanaians who are Jews, we know they believe in God but do not accept the New Testament. I’m saying that when we are doing secular things we should do secular things," Kwesi insisted.
