The Head of Financial Stability at the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Joseph France has announced that commencing July 1, all persons who have failed to link their Ghana cards to their bank accounts will be unable to withdraw funds from their bank accounts.
According to him, unlinked accounts will be able to receive deposits till such a time when the owner finally links their Ghana card details to the account.
He related that, the linkage of Ghana cards to bank accounts is a government initiative to weed out fraudsters from the banking sector.
Due to this Ahenkan News reporter, Kwabena Akim spoke to some Ghanaians on whether they have been able to link their Ghana cards as directed and some confirmed that, they are yet to do so.
Some said that, they really don’t understand the motive for linking their cards so they will wait a little.
Others also said that, the government should direct the Bank of Ghana to create smaller centers with their personnel within the community to embark on the exercise within a time period, so that the banking offices will not be choked.
