Agbodza hits back at BoG Governor over refusal to resign

The Minority Chief Whip, Governs Agbodza has hit back at the Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG), Dr Ernest Addison over his comments not to resign from his post despite several calls from opposition parties.

In an interview with international business news website, Central Banking, Addison said he is not stepping down, describing the protest by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as “completely unnecessary.”

“The Minority [MPs] in Parliament have many channels to channel their grievances in civilised societies, not through demonstrations in the streets as hooligans,” Addison added in reference to the #OccupyBoGProtest.

But reacting to this, the MP for the Adaklu constituency said he believed the Governor of the central bank was being shielded hence his remarks.

He warned that Dr Addison would soon be made to face the full rigours of the law.

“He’s a protected arrogant thief. His day to face justice will surely come,” Agbodza warned.

The Minority held a protest on Tuesday to demand the resignation of the BoG Governor and his deputies following loses incurred by the apex bank as well as an ongoing head office complex.

Leaders of the protest refused to hand over their petition to the head of security at the BoG instead of the Governor or his deputies. They have decided to continue protesting until Dr. Addison and his deputies resign.
