However, the B&FT has stated that the government have hinted at a strong support for Mrs Anan Ankomah to be appointed as the second deputy governor of the central bank.

Many people have called on the government to quickly announce Dr Asiama’s replacement.

The appointment of a new person to the position of the second deputy governorship position will mean that the NPP government on assumption of office on January 7, 2017, has replaced the trio (governors) at the Bank of Ghana.

Dr Asiama is said to have tendered in his resignation letter on Wednesday, December 27, 2017.

The president, Nana Akufo-Addo has been formally informed about his resignation with copies of the letter sent to the office of the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Ernest Addison and Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta.
