Mr Akufo-Addo said this while swearing in the newly-constituted board of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) on Friday August 20.

“I welcome all of you to Jubilee House, the seat of the nation’s presidency and I congratulate the Governor, ex-officio the chairperson and members of the newly constituted board of the  Bank of Ghana  on their well deserved appointment.

“I am pleased not only to have sworn into office  members of the board of the Bank of Ghana  a few moments ago,  but also to have this opportunity  to comment on the invaluable  contribution of the bank  to the transformation agenda  of government.

“In the past few weeks a number of boards have been reconstituted and duly inaugurated  and verily members of these  boards have been sworn into office  by their respective sector ministers  however I decided to swear into office  the board of the Central bank myself. 

“I did so in order to have an appropriate platform to express  my sincere appreciation  to the board and management  of the bank  for the stela work  they have done for our nation  since my assumption of office in January 2017.”

The Governing Board is responsible for formulating policies for the achievement of the Bank’s objectives.
