Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah and three others were arrested for the creation and circulation of multiple videos containing threats, and the brandishing of a weapon, and the assault of some police personnel.

Ghanaians On Twitter Mock Ghana Police As BoG Set To Scrap GH¢1 And GH¢2 Notes; See Reactions

The GH¢1 and GH¢2 notes will be phased out of circulation soon, as the Bank of Ghana gradually plans to remove them from circulation.

According to the Central Bank, the poor handling of the notes, that is torn and soiled, make it expensive to print them.

“Both the GH¢1 and GH¢2 notes would eventually be phased out because they are not cost-effective in terms of the printing cost”, he pointed out.

“These are notes that circulate very widely, and they come back very torn and soiled and they are very difficult for our currency processing machines to process. We have bales and bales of ¢1 notes that we are not able to process”, Dr. Addison stressed.

“You will recall that this is a note [¢2] that was issued as a commemorative note; commemorative notes are not notes that you continue to print”, he continued.

“What we have done in the last two years is to introduce the ¢2 coin. You would expect that, eventually, it would more or less play the role that the ¢2 note is playing.”
