This amount is the shortfall in funds the government needs to execute its 2019 budget.

The Akufo-Addo-led government has been unable to raise its targeted domestic revenues.

The requested amount is therefore expected to help the government to complete its planned programmes and initiatives as contained in the 2019 financial year.

The Finance Minister made this request ahead of his mid-year budget presentation to Parliament this morning .
