Mr Oppong Nkrumah was reported to have said that 16 flagship programmes of government will be cancelled..
“All the 16 flagship programmes are up to be looked at
The President has directed that the flagship programmes should be protected and fully implemented to ensure that the impact is achieved
“If based on the caps that we are working with we will have to rescope a particular flagship programme, we will do it and see how much we can achieve
“Only that the President has laid down the red line that we will not compromise on the fiscal consolidation agenda because our real problem over the years has been a year-on-year deficit going out of hand,” he explained on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen.
