Following the introduction of new Ghana Cedi notes and an announcement that players in Ghana’s premier league will enjoy the new notes, avowed critic of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government Kevin Ekow Baidoo Taylor, has described the government as “useless”, stressing that “this change is a waste.”
“Now I am totally convinced that my NPP government is a useless government. They just wasted our time. THIS CHANGE IS A WASTE. #focus,” he reacted on Facebook in a Facebook post.
The Bank of Ghana on Friday November 29, 2019 announced the introduction of GH¢100 and GH¢200 notes in the country’s currency denomination mix.
It has also introduced GH¢2 coins.
The move has been met with widespread criticism by many Ghanaians on social media, with many pointing out the irony in taking steps to promote a cashless economy on the one hand and printing more currency notes on the other.
