The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has asked the Governor of Bank of Ghana (BoG), Dr Ernest Addison and his deputies to resign.
The umbrella family has given them a 21-day ultimatum to resign or they will mobile people to march to the premises of BoG.
Minority Leader, Ato Forson addressing journalists under the NDC’s Moment of Truth series on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, opined that the current governor has mismanaged the central bank and that was one of the reasons we went to the IMF for a bailout.
“In this regard, we call for the resignation of the Governor of the Central Bank and his deputies within 21 days from today. We are resolved to embark on popular action to occupy the Central Bank and drive out the team of inept, callous and criminal mismanagers of the finances of this country and save the Bank of Ghana. The March to Ensure Accountability will begin in 21 days if the Governor of the Bank of Ghana does not do the needful and pack bag and baggage out of that sacred institution that he has so desecrated. Dr Ernest Addisson Must Go! There has to be an end to impunity and it is NOW!”
“This means the recklessness and mismanagement of the Governor of the Bank of Ghana has cost the nation twice what we are struggling and sacrificing to receive from the IMF amid major conditionalities”.
He was responding to the Bank of Ghana’s record loss of GH60.8 billion in the fiscal year 2022.
