- Head of the Central Bank, Dr. Kofi Wampah insists he will not resign over his son-in-law's engagement in illegal drug trade
- Dr. Kofi Wampah has argued that the arrest of the British fugitive has nothing to do with his job as Governor of the Bank of Ghana
Governor of the Central Bank, Dr. Henry Kofi Wampah has thrown out all calls on him to resign following the engagement of his son-in-law, David McDermott in drug trade.
Arguing out his stance during an interview granted him by Kasapa FM, Dr. Kofi Wampah justifies that the illegal business of his son-in-law has no bearing on his job as governor of the Central Bank.
“My son in law is my son in law; it has nothing to do with me being Governor of the Central Bank. I have made a statement on that and that should be enough for you. My term will end this year and I will let you know when am going so thank you,” Dr. Wampah stated.
David McDermott, a British national married to the step-daughter of Dr. Wampah was arrested on March 11, at his home in Accra for his involvement in illegal drug trade as UK officials confirm that McDermott, who has been working in Ghana’s mining industry, had been on the run for the past three years, for attempting to import cocaine into the UK.
