He was appointed barely a year ago by former President, John Mahama but Central Bank Governor, Dr. Abdul Nashiru Issahaku has stepped down citing personal reasons but some observers reckon, his resignation shows just how difficult the climate is for certain executives to work once a change of government happens citing political pressure.
He was appointed in April, 2016 after his predecessor Dr. Henry Wampah resigned and although the Bank of Ghana law protected governors from being dismissed, he opted to go away.
Abdul Nashiru Issahaku in his term had to tackle rising inflation and depreciation of the cedi.
Dr. Issahaku worked with the World Bank as a Senior Public Sector Specialist; the African Development Bank as a Principal Governance Expert; the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa as a Development Management Officer; the Canadian International Development Agency as a Socio-Economic Advisor and Project Coordinator; and the National Development Planning Commission, Ghana as a Senior Planning Analyst.
His resignation takes effect from April 1, 2017.
