His retirement will cut short a four-year term during which he has struggled to rein in inflation and halt the decline of the national currency, the Ghana Cedi.

The BoG governor’s official term ends on Aug. 5, 2016.

Meanwhile, he said he had informed President, John Mahama of his intention to leave early, adding that the decision was partly linked to presidential and parliamentary elections planned for November.

He told Reuters that, “I told him I wanted to leave office early and we have agreed that I will exit at the end of March,” Wampah said.

He also pointed out that, “It is just fair to leave early in order to give enough room for my successor, whoever it might be, to settle down before we get to the elections.”
