Government is scheduled to hold a town hall meeting on Monday, September 9, 2019, at Techiman in the Bono East Region to address issues on the financial sector clean ups and other reforms being undertaken by the government.
According to Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Techiman town hall meeting which will be the 2nd edition of the regional editions and the 3rd in Ghana will focus on accountability by government.

The financial sector reform has cost us about GHc14billion which we haven’t even spent on road constructions and there is the need for in-depth discussion to create an understanding for people, the minister of information said.
Speaking in an interview on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem, Mr Oppong said: There are still some misconceptions on the financial sector reforms, especially the cleanups and some people think it was a deliberate action to collapse some banks.
We need to explain to Ghanaians why we started that in the first place, the success stories and the way forward. It will be broadcast live on many media platforms and I believe we can all have time to listen, he added.
The first town hall meeting in Ghana was by the Economic Management Team led by the Vice President, Dr Bawumia, followed by the first regional town hall meeting in the Volta region which focused on social programmes.
