Senior Presidential Advisor, Mr. Yaw Osafo Maafo has described the controversial 2022 budget that has raised a lot of concerns following the introduction of E-Levy as one of the best budgets the country has ever come up with.
According to him it is one of the best because the budget made provision or youth employment through entrepreneurship and the introduction of E-Levy to fund entrepreneurship ventures.
“Indeed, this current budget is one of the best this country has ever produced,” he stated.
Mr. Osafo Maafo made the comment on Tuesday 14th December at the launch of the Ghana TVET Service in Accra.
“Because, there are two things in it which are fundamental and these are some entrepreneurship training that we are putting as part of a responsibility of government to ensure that the youth is resourced financially to be entrepreneurial, that people cannot use access to funds as a handicap. That people can develop skills and become entrepreneurs”.
“The introduction of the E-levy is extremely critical. These two things in this budget, people must hail it, it is fundamentally a good document”. he added.
