Legal counsel for Dr. Johnson Asiama, the Second Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana, has revealed there are “some skirmishes” to get his client to resign from the Central Bank.
Kojogah Adawudu told Joy Business, there are “some few people in government who think that he should bow out”.
But he insists, his client is still at post despite a Joy News report that pointed to an imminent departure of Dr. Johnson Asiama.
Sources say he has taken his accumulated leave before his final exit from the bank by the close of this month.
Dr Asiama’s decision to move on is reported to have been communicated in the first week of December to some senior persons at BoG.
Following the story, his lawyer, Kojoga Adawudu, told JOYBUSINESS, Dr. Asiama’s leave was not terminal but it was to attend to family issues.
“He is coming back…the man has been appointed for four years…Dr. Asiama is still the Second Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana”.
He would not confirm or deny that the bank is working out a package for his client.
“I believe that if there are negotiations ongoing between two parties and that information comes out , that is a sign of bad fate” Kojogah Adawudu added.
