The Minority Caucus in Ghana’s Parliament has indicated its preparedness to proceed with its planned protest against the Bank of Ghana’s governor and his two deputies.
On Tuesday, October 3, the Caucus will march to the Central Bank’s headquarters to demand the resignation of its governor and deputies after the Bank recorded a GH¢60.81 billion loss in the 2022 fiscal year and the use of over $250 million for the construction of a new headquarters.
Mahama Ayariga, the Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, told Citi News that the Caucus has consulted extensively and is poised to protest on Tuesday.
He added that the Regional Police Command has agreed to the protest march and that the Caucus will continue to protest until the governor and his deputies leave office.
“We have been working on this, and we have been holding community sensitisation programmes across the Greater Accra Region, and we are ready for the planned protest on Tuesday. We have been well received in all the communities that we have gone to, and they are preparing to participate in the protest. We will continue to protest until the governor and his deputies leave office until we have a clean sheet at the Central Bank so that new leadership can be put in place to spearhead the process of restoring the integrity of the Central Bank.
“We held meetings with the Regional Police Command and agreed on the route, the time, and they are ready to be there to provide whatever assistance.” Portions of the statement read.
