Martin Kpebu, a private attorney, has backed the Minority’s planned protest to demand Dr. Ernest Addison, governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG), quit immediately.
The governor has been charged by the Minority of neglecting to practice monetary restraint in his interactions with the Finance Minister, causing the central bank to suffer a loss of GH60.8 billion in 2022.
Martin Kpebu considers the Minority’s intention to stage a demonstration to be long overdue and positive news.
“Actually, the Minority has slept for too long. Because the whole of last year, apart from the Arise Ghana demonstration and then my demonstration, the Minority didn’t do much. It was so painful. It looked like they had no balls. But if now they’re getting up, yeah, half a loaf is better than none.”
He said that Dr. Ernest Addison has lost his mind, making the action imperative.
He called the governor inept and said it was past time for him to depart since he had not maintained budgetary discipline.
“So what the Minority is doing is what we have to do as citizens, because look, Governor Addison has lost the plot. He’s very, very incompetent. Addison’s problem is like the way Wampah was under their (NDC) regime. Addison and Wampah belong to one basket,” he said.
