Bolgatanga Central Member of Parliament Isaac Adongo has accused government officials of stealing ¢70billion.
The Bank of Ghana manages the inflationary target framework whiles the reports actually but the man who is in charge of managing our inflation targeting framework and ensuring that inflation expectations are anchored, is the Governor of the Central Bank.
“The inflationary targeting framework within the confines of the Bank of Ghana provided very strict rules on what we call fiscal governance over monetary policy, in other words there are strict rules on the government of Ghana can borrow from the Bank of Ghana.
If you consider last year ‘s revenue then the government cannot even borrow five million Cedis from the BoG.
“But by the end of the year 2021, Dr Addison has illegally lent to government ¢35billion, and by May this year he had added an additional ¢22billion when the Minister came at Mid year review
As we speak today, Dr Addison has been financing government and paying maturing debt obligations the domestic market that the government cannot find, we are currently looking at something in excess of 7billion of illegally borrowing by the Government of Ghana from the BoG.
“If you have a corrupt government such as Akufo-Addo and Dr Bawumia and you pump 70billion to the economy that does not belong to the economy, they steal them and they put them in their rooms under their beds.
