Ghana’s Central Bank Governor resigns

Abdul Nashiru Issahaku

Governor of Ghana’s central bank, Abdul-Nashiru Issahaku has resigned from office. Abdul-Nashiru Issahaku held his last Monetary Policy Committee press briefing on Monday, where he announced a 200 basis point reduction in the bank’s benchmark policy rate from 25.5 per cent to 23.5 per cent.

Sources within the central bank said the governor who resumed around September last year tendered his resignation on Wednesday stating personal reasons.

Issahaku was appointed by former president John Mahama in April 2016 in an acting position when Henry Wampah tendered his resignation six months before the end of his tenure.
