The West Africa Monetary Zone (WAMZ) has confirmed the appointment of the governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Henry Kofi Wampah as its chairman.

He was nominated by Sierra Leone unanimously to take over from the governor of Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi at the 29thmeeting of the committee of Governors of Central Banks of the West Africa Monetary Zone in Accra.

The nomination of Dr Wampah will mean he will steer the affairs of the Committee for the next six months.

Dr. Wampah has once been Director of the Research and Statistics Department of the West African Monetary Institute (WAMI), responsible for the overall supervision and coordination of the work programme of the Department.

He supervised the planning and implementation of the Macroeconomic Convergence monitoring programme of the West African Monetary Zone (WAMZ), and was extensively involved in preparing the five member countries of the zone (The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Nigeria and Sierra Leone) for monetary union, in the areas of macroeconomic convergence and policy harmonization (monetary policy, statistics, fiscal policy and exchange rate management).
