The Minority has pledged to return to the streets in the near future to march to demand the resignation of the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Ernest Yedu Kwamina Addison, and his two deputies following their absence on Tuesday, October 3.
The Minority had demanded to present its petition to Dr Addison or at least one of his two deputies after a procession from Obra Spot near the Kwame Nlkrumah Circle Interchange.
But the Governor delegated Wing Commander (rtd) Kwame Asare Boateng, the Director of Security at the Bank of Ghana, to receive the petition on his behalf.
“We were informed that you were coming to present a petition to the Governor but the three governors are currently meeting the IMF and there is nobody there,” WC (rtd) Asare Boateng told leaders of the protest.
“So, the Governor has asked that I meet you and take the petition.”
“First, let me say that I feel very disrespected as the leader of the opposition in Parliament for a simple reason that we demanded to present a petition to the Governor of the central bank of the Republic of Ghana otherwise known as the Bank of Ghana.
“The Governor has two deputies namely Deputy 1 and Deputy 2.
“Unfortunately, he has decided to disrespect us and the two deputies have also decided to disrespect us.”
So he later served notice they will come back and will not relent in demanding the resignation of the three.
“We will come back again,” he said.
He later added: “Until we see him, we are not stopping. This is just the beginning.”
