The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is alleging that President Nana Akufo-Addo subtly forced the former governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Abdul Nashiru Issahaku to resign.
According to the chairman of the party, Kofi Portuphy, the NPP since assuming office has forced several public servants out of office.
“Since the assumption of office, the Akufo-Addo administration has forced several professional public servants out of their offices and replaced them with loyalist party members… A typical example is the manner in which the governor of the Bank of Ghana has been prevented from completing his term of office and has been forced to resign prematurely,” he said at a press conference in Accra Wednesday.
The Central Bank governor, Dr Abdul Nashiru Issahaku, resigned from his post in March, citing personal reasons for the move.
He was at post for barely a year, after taking over from his predecessor, Dr Henry Wampah, who also resigned in April 2016.
