The Senior Presidential Advisor, Mr Yaw Osafo-Maafo has given reasons why he thinks the Agyenkwa 2022 Budget is one of the best-ever.
According to him, the budget makes provision for youth employment through entrepreneurship as well as skills development and the introduction of the Electronic levy (E-levy) to fund entrepreneurship ventures.
“Indeed, this current budget is one of the best this country has ever produced,” Mr Osafo-Maafo said.
“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”.
Mr Osafo-Maafo charged the country’s youth to move beyond the “I want a job mentality” to embracing a mentality of “I am creating a job for myself and others”.
