The 1st vice chairman of the NPP in the Eastern Region has call on president Nana Addo to sack Dr. Ishahaku, the current Bank of Ghana Governor in order to rescue the marathon depreciating cedi.
In an itAinterview on radio, Alhaji Umar Bodinga in his opinion said, since Dr. Ishahaku has contested on NDC party ticket as parliamentary candidate for the 2000 general elections, hence has the tendency to elicit sabotage mentality towards the government.
“The governor of Bank of Ghana now, was NDC parliamentary candidate in Sabongida constituency in the North, 2000.”
Former president John Dramani Mahama has appointed Dr. Ishahaku as acting govern of the nation’s central financial institution after the retirement of Dr. Kofi Whampa, but just after the 2016 general elections, H. E. JDM made the appointment substantive.
This the NPP chairman believe is a diabolical plan by the NDC to make the New Patriotic Party government unpopular in handling the local currency.
“That is the reason why at the peak of the elections when NDC was about to leave power president Mahama brought Dr. Ishahaku to be governor of Bank of Ghana. The dollar is depreciating because of the diabolic agenda of NDC member being the governor.”
Alhaji Bodinga called on H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo to sack the governor in other to put in measures that would appreciate the currency and make it stable.
“I am calling on His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo to sack the man so Ghanaians have fare share of governance.”
