ASPERSIONS ON THE US$2.25 BILLION OF DOMESTIC CEDI DENOMINATED BONDS ISSUED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF GHANA

April 20, 2017  The attention of the Ministry of Finance has been drawn to a statement issued by the Minority in Parliament which seeks to cast negative aspersions on the 9.7 billion cedis (USD2.25 BILLION) domestic bond issue of the Government of Ghana.
 
2.         The Ministry considers the statement as unfortunate especially as it was fronted by Hon Cassiel Ato Forson, a former Deputy Finance Minister, who knows very well the workings and processes for the issue of domestic bonds and as such, should not be making such baseless allegations. As such, the Ministry has no choice but to surmise that these allegations are maliciously designed to malign and negate the positive news and rave reviews this landmark transaction has garnered, both locally and internationally.
