The Speaker of Parliament has been urged to call the Governor of the Bank of Ghana immediately to brief the House on the different activities of the central bank, according to the deputy ranking member of the parliament’s finance committee.
The Ranking Member claims that the invitation will be focused in particular on the problems that have caused the state’s economic problems.
While participating in the Finance Minister’s presentation to the House on the Domestic Debt Exchange Program (DDEP), Mr. Isaac Adongo made this request to the Speaker.
The current DDEP will not apply to pensioners who did not sign any bonds, according to the finance minister among other things.
The ranking member, who represents Bolgatanga Central in the Upper East as a member of parliament for the National Democratic Congress, stated that the central bank is a contributing factor in the issue.
Additionally, he persuaded the Speaker to call the governor before the House.
In addition, Mr. Adongo urged the House to look into each allegation made by the Finance Minister.
He also demanded that he step down right away.
A ranking member of the Energy and Mines Committee of Parliament, Mr. John Jinapor, spoke during the minister’s remarks on the floor and begged with the House to support a resolution to require the Finance Minister to totally exclude all pensioners and individual bondholders from the DDEP.
