A former National Organizer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Hamidu Akamba, joined hundreds of Ghanaian protesters demanding the resignation of the Bank of Ghana (BOG) governor and his deputies.
In a message written on his placard, Mr. Akamaba accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of taking over Satan’s job.
The accusation, according to Mr. Akamba pertains to the current economic difficulties experienced by the people of Ghana rendering millions jobless and homeless.
A significant sector of the Ghanaian population has voiced their dissatisfaction with the Bank of Ghana governor and even called for his resignation. However, despite these demands, President Nana Addo’s administration has so far failed to address this issue. This inaction of the government has led to accusations of negligence on their part.
Joshua Akamba has asked President Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to also step down from office over their inability to protect the country and mitigate economic suffering.
Speaking to the media, Mr. Akamba noted that, “So far, the Nana Addo/Bawumia-led NPP government has been a government of misadventure and Ghanaians are worse for it. They say they are fighting corruption but are shielding corrupt elements within their fold.”
“BOG governor must resign immediately if the president loves Ghana,” he stated.
