Ghanaians have received the Central Bank’s announcement of introduction of GH¢100, GH¢200 notes and a GH¢2 coin with ambivalence.
While many are taken aback by the sudden announcement, others are questioning the rationale.
With the announcement earlier this year that the sub-region has adopted the use of the common currency, ECO from 2020, a Twitter user believes “something is not right” with the introduction of the notes.

Wait… Is the ecowas currency not coming out next year? Why the rush to introduce these new notes now? Chale something is not right at Bank of Ghana.
