The central bank defines Mr. Addo’s role as “to help restructure NIB through governance and management reforms as well as streamlining its business model to help refocus it as a bank to industrialisation. He will stay in the bank until otherwise advised by the Bank of Ghana and will furnish the Bank of Ghana with a status report on the bank as frequently as the Bank of Ghana may require.
“It is important to note that an Advisor does not take over the powers, responsibilities, and duties of the bank’s shareholders, directors, or management. Under Act 930, the Advisor may attend meetings of the Board of Directors without voting at such meetings”, the BoG said.
