DACF: Minority to boycott MoF if ₵6bn not disbursed
The Minority in Parliament has threatened to boycott the finance ministry's business over the failure of the minister to disburse GHS6.2 billion of the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) which is overdue.
The inability to provide statutory allocations to the District Assemblies Common Fund has triggered the minority's renewed threats to boycott any transactions in relation to the finance ministry.
According to the National Democratic Congress MPs, the Finance Minister, Mr Ken Ofori-Atta, since 2018, has not released the said GHS6.2 billion that is owed to the DACF.
They contend that this violates the 1992 Constitution 1992.
Speaking to the media after meeting with Naa Torshie Addo, the Common Fund Administrator, the Minority Chief Whip, Mr Kwame Agbodza, revealed that the development has rendered all the Assemblies worthless.
Mr Benjamin Kpodo, the Ho Central MP and a Member of the Finance Committee, and Nii Lante Vanderpuije, a Ranking Member of the Local Government Committee, urged the minister to take action since MPs are overworked as a result of the various Assemblies' financial paralysis.
