The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress has accused the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo-Addo for appointing his girlfriend into the office of the Second Deputy Governor for the Central Bank of Ghana.
On Monday’s edition of ASEM YI DIKA, the most popular political and current affairs show on ATV, the general secretary said Madam Elsie Awadzi was about to be wedded by a gentleman sometime back when the President snatched the lady, an act which nearly caused the broken-hearted man to poison himself.
The two-term General Secretary leveled several allegations against the current President including a formation of a government full of family members. President Akufo-Addo named the international Economic and Financial lawyer, Elsie Awadzi as the Second Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana on Monday 12th February, 2018. The announcement of Mrs Awadzi’s appointment was made through a post by the President’s Facebook account after thorough consultations with the Council of State. The Second Deputy Governor of the Central Bank position became vacant following the resignation of Dr. Johnson Asiama early January.
Her areas of specialization are Financial Sector Development and Regulation, Financial Stability Assessments, Crisis Management Frameworks Design and Financial Safety Nets, and Legal and Institutional aspects of Public Financial Management.
She holds an LL.M. degree (International Business and Economic Law) with distinction from the Georgetown University Law Centre, an M.B.A. (Finance) from the University of Ghana and an LL.B. Degree from the same university but Mr. Asiedu Nketia believes she wouldn’t have attained thatposition but for her relationship with the President.
