In a press conference today, Dr. Ernest Addison, Governor of the Bank of Ghana, addressed recent calls for his resignation, stating firmly, “I won’t resign.” The governor dismissed the demands as unfounded and stressed his commitment to the country’s economic stability.
Regarding the National Democratic Congress (NDC) demonstration urging his resignation, Dr. Addison deemed it “completely unnecessary.” He emphasized that his focus remains on implementing sound monetary policies and fostering financial resilience in the face of economic challenges.
The NDC’s protest, which took place in the capital, drew attention from various quarters. Critics argue that the demonstration adds unnecessary tension to an already complex economic landscape, while supporters believe it serves as a crucial expression of dissent.
The governor assured the public that he remains dedicated to navigating the country through economic uncertainties, and he urged for cooperation to address challenges collectively. The situation is expected to fuel further debates on the role of central bank governors and the political dynamics influencing financial institutions.
