Bank of Ghana governor Henry Kofi Wampah will retire at the end of March, he told Reuters on Tuesday.

In the process he will be cutting short a four-year term during which he struggled to rein in inflation and stem the decline of the cedi currency.

Wampah, whose term officially ends on Aug. 5, said he had informed President John Mahama of his intention to leave early, adding that it would give his successor time to settle in before presidential and parliamentary elections planned for November.
