Ghana central bank governor nominated as vice-president


A senior official at the Bank of Ghana today (August 1) confirmed that the president of the country, John Dramani Mahama has nominated the governor of the central bank, Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, as his vice-president.

The selection process is not complete, with a decision still to come from the parliament's appointment committee for approval, but this step is widely seen as a formality.

The move will see Amissah-Arthur become Mahama's running mate after the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC)
