Digital payment : Ex-Emir Sanusi ranks Ghana Central Bank above CBN



 Digital payment Ex Emir Sanusi ranks Ghana Central Bank above CBN

A former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and ex-Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has said that Bank of Ghana (BoG) was the leading central bank in the sub-region with regards to the use of technology in the financial service industry (Fintech).

According to an online newspaper, GhanaWeb, Sanusi II, who is now the Khalifa of the Tijjaniya Islamic Movement, said BoG was now leading the CBN on Fintech and other financial operations.

“I must say I am jealous because the Bank of Ghana has gotten ahead of the Central Bank of Nigeria on Fintech and others,” he said.

Sanusi II, who disclosed this when he called on Ghana’s Vice President, Mahamudu Bawumia, in Accra, Ghana, added that the Central Bank of Nigeria was now learning from BoG.

“We all started with banking modules, but I think you quickly realised it was limited and you broke off. But I am happy that the roles are being reversed and we are now copying from Ghana,” he added.

He, therefore, commended BoG for its achievements in digital payment systems which countries in Africa were now learning from.

The former Emir of Kano also said the tremendous success Ghana had achieved in its digitisation agenda was partly due to the enormous experience of Mahamud Bawumia has had in banking and digital payment regulations when he worked in the banking sector.
