The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has postponed its town-hall meeting scheduled for Tuesday, November 30, 2021.

The main opposition party in a letter dated Friday, November 26, 2021, announced that it will engage various stakeholders on the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy proposal at a town hall meeting to be held in Kumasi next week.

However, after consultations, it has through a different statement today, disclosed that the planned town hall meeting has been postponed to a later date to be confirmed soon.

“The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has postponed its earlier advertised Town-Hall meeting on the 2022 "Awudie Budget" which was scheduled for 30th November 2021 at Great Hall, KNUST until further notice,” a statement signed by National Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi has said.

In an explanation, the NDC says the postponing of the town hall meeting is due to the total rejection of the 2022 "Killer Budget" by the gallant NDC Minority in Parliament yesterday.

Below is the NDC statement on the postponing of the town hall meeting:

NDC POSTPONES TOWN-HALL MEETING ON 2022 "AWUDIE" BUDGET

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has postponed its earlier advertised Town-Hall meeting on the 2022 "Awudie Budget" which was scheduled for 30th November, 2021 at Great Hall, KNUST until further notice.

This follows the total rejection of the 2022 "Killer Budget" by the gallant NDC Minority in Parliament yesterday.

The party salutes the courage and patriotism that was displayed by the Minority Caucus Leadership and all 137 NDC members of Parliament who chose to stand for the people of Ghana and refuse to be part of the further imposition of hardships on the already-burdened Ghanaian people, as the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia/NPP government sought to do through this rather unpopular 2022 Budget.

The party shall announce a new date for the Town-Hall Meeting in due course.

Signed,

SAMMY GYAMFI
