The Second Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Johnson Asiama has resigned.
Sources say he has taken his accumulated leave leading to his exit from the bank by the close of this month.
Dr Asiama’s decision to move on was communicated in the first week of December to some senior persons at BoG.
Did Dr Asiama resign or was he pushed?
It is not clear for now what might have influenced Dr Asima’s decision to move on or step down from that position, but sources say challenges in working with the new government and some key senior persons at the BoG because he is perceived as an “outsider.”
According to sources, Dr Asiama was pushed out, even though he was personally willing to work with the current administration in his professional capacity, until his term expires in April 2020.
Some of his colleagues at the Central say this action was expected especially with a change in government.
