Mahama Ayariga, the Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, has taken steps to shed light on the construction of the new Headquarters building of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) located in Ridge, Accra.
In a formal letter addressed to Dr. Ernest Addison, the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Ayariga has put forth a series of inquiries aimed at gaining insight into the project.
Central to Ayariga’s request are four key points, which include acquiring information about the cost of the land on which the Bank of Ghana’s new edifice is being erected. This query is made under the purview of section 18 of the Right to Information Act 2019 ACT (989).
Mr. Ayariga has noted that his request stems from the directive of Ing. Kwame Governs Agbodza, the Adaklu constituency representative and the Chief Whip of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) caucus in the Ghanaian Parliament. The NDC, operating as the Minority Chief Whip, has taken a vested interest in seeking transparency regarding the Bank of Ghana’s new headquarters project.
This move by Ayariga and the broader NDC caucus underscores the commitment of Ghana’s elected officials to uphold transparency and accountability in matters of public interest.
As the construction of the Bank of Ghana’s new headquarters unfolds, such inquiries serve to promote openness and ensure that the use of public funds is both prudent and in line with legal frameworks.
The responses to Ayariga’s inquiries are anticipated to provide valuable insights into the financial aspects of the Bank of Ghana’s new headquarters project, contributing to a more informed public discourse on the matter.
As the wheels of transparency continue to turn, the Ghanaian public eagerly awaits a comprehensive and timely response to these crucial inquiries.
