APC MP Blasts 2019 Budget


By Aruna Rashed Toma Bangura

All People’s Congress (APC) Member of Parliament for Constituency 48, Tonkolili District, Aaron Aruun Koroma has during the just concluded 2019 budget debate in Parliament said that the 2019 budget is a fictitious, bogus and a ‘shinka’ one.

According to him, the 21% allocated to the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education is a farce as from his calculation only 16% of the 2019 budget was allocated to the free quality education. He said over one trillion Leones was allocated to the Ministry but that the said figure does not reconcile with what is stated in the budget.
