President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says Ghana's terms agreed with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) regarding the three-year US$3 billion Extended Credit Facility (ECF) is still intact despite his recent reshuffle.

He told Parliament in his State of the Nation Address (SONA) that Mr Ken Ofori-Atta's removal as Finance minister would not have any impact on the deal.

The president also assured that the ECF is aimed at supporting Ghana’s economic policies and reforms with new appointed Finance Minister,  Mohammed Amin Adam.

“Mr Speaker, it is important to underline that the recent change in the leadership of the Finance Ministry will not affect the Government’s commitment to implementing the terms agreed with the IMF to ensure that we restore the economy to healthy growth as soon as possible.” The president said.
