Akufo-Addo Applauds BoG’s Contributions To National Development

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has commended the Bank of Ghana for playing a pivotal role in promoting the country’s socio-economic development.

According to President Akufo-Addo, through the Bank’s diligence and commitment, it has attempted to fulfil its mandate to ensure price stability and to create an enabling environment for sustainable growth.

The President, thus, expressed his profound gratitude to all who have contributed in various ways to bring the Bank to where it is today.

“You are a unique institution with a broad mandate. You are not just distinguished technocrats. You are the banker to the government, and the custodian of the nation’s precious asset – money.

You are the currency manager, the source and regulator of liquidity, and, above all, the lender of last resort to the banking sector. How you fulfil these multiple roles is what makes you a unique institution,” he said.

President Akufo-Addo made this known on Friday, 18th August, 2017, when he delivered a speech at the 60th anniversary celebration of the Bank, at an event held at the Kempinski Hotel, in Accra.

Whilst saluting all the governors, boards of directors, top management, Monetary Policy Committee members, and staff, both past and present, for their dedication and service to the Bank, President indicated that it was auspicious that on the occasion of its 60th birthday, “one of your own should be occupying the high office of Vice President of the Republic, an office whose functions he is discharging with commendable brilliance and high sense of responsibility, as befits a central banker of quality.”
