Minority Leader of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr Casiel Ato Forson says protesters demanding the resignation of Bank of Ghana (BoG) Governor, Dr Ernest Yedu Addison will not stop until they meet and present their petition to him.
“Governor Addison has decided to disrespect us with the excuse that he is meeting with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) when he could have given us 10 minutes of his time,” he told the teeming protesters as a man who identified himself as the head of Security at the Bank appeared to receive the protestors petition.
Dr Ato Forson said his petition contains more than just the resignation of BoG leadership “So the Governor sending security officers to receive our petition is disrespectful.”
He said they will not present the petition but they will look for another time to present the petition.
For his part, the General Security of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said, “IMF is not more important than Ghanaians whose taxes are used to pay him.”
He said the Minority will boycott Dr Addison whenever he comes to Parliament to make any presentation.
‘Dr Addison or no other’ – Ato Forson
As the #OccupyBoG protest took off on Tuesday morning, the Minority Leader said they would not submit their petition to other officials aside from the Governor.
According to Cassiel Ato Forson, the group is ready to stay at the Central Bank for as long as they can if Dr Ernest Addison does not avail himself to receive their petition.
The demonstration demanding the resignation of the Bank of Ghana’s Governor and his two deputies commenced at Obra Spot in Accra.
