But the legislator, who is also a medical doctor, said the President does not read. His claim is based on the fact that the Governor of Bank of Ghana at the time of the re-denomination exercise, Dr Paul Acquah, had presented all the requisite documents to Parliament in 2007 when indeed President Mahama was the MP for Bole/Bamboi.
