Finance Minister under the past John Mahama organization, Seth Terkper, has scrutinized the purpose for the rejection of a significant strategy, for example, the Agyapa Royalties from the 2020 spending plan just as the 2020 Mid-Year Budget Review.
As indicated by him, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Att, notwithstanding going on about MIIF in introducing the two spending plans to Parliament, neglected to give adequate data on Agyapa Royalties which influences the financial structure of government.
Among the data Mr Terkper says the administration neglected to provide for the House included; the selling of the current $200 million dollars accumulated to the State from its mineral eminences just as it being the considerable substitution of the Minerals Development Fund (MDF).
In evaluating the 2020 Substantive and Supplementary Budgets, the Government didn’t give any of the accompanying financial measures to Parliament;
That the MIIF will meaningfully supplant the Minerals Development Fund [MDF] from 2020 – as the Government noted;
No strategy on how current MDF recipients, including conventional specialists, will keep on getting their cash;
The current worth calculations for about $200 million that accumulates from the sovereignties that will be “sold” for $500 million to $1 billion credit facilty; and
No unequivocal arrangements in Financing (or obtaining) and Public Debt in the Budgets from 2020 onwards—other than the International Monetary Fund (IMF) COVID Loan, he composed.
Mr Terkper further in the announcement expressed that the legislature in applying for the IMF Covid-19 advance in March 2020, occupied with its constant equal information detailing by barring the monetization of the nation’s mineral eminences while remembering it for the 2019 spending plan.
