Why do you attribute the increase in the exchange rate on the bank governor?

Dollar vs Leones and the Auction Policy My Take. By Ansumana George Firstly, we have to understand why certain policies are implemented at some point. Economics and Finance policies are implemented not based on opinion but based on data and prevailing market conditions at a time. We saw at the tail end of the redenomination circle the dollar started to increase geometrically, so the BSL has to extend the time again to avoid rush in the market, and today we have seen the foreign exchange policy issued by BSL which is geared towards neutralizing the exchange rate to protect our national/local currency.  This is what we should be asking, do we print dollar in SL?  do we have enough investments in key sectors like mining, fisheries, manufacturing etc to strengthening our dollar reserves and give us satisfactory current account balance so that we will not struggle in situations like this, if the answer is no then why blame the Bank Governor? Foreign excha

The SLPP stronghold leads in total voter registration...Phase 1

Results for the first round of voter registration are in, and the Southeast is clearly ahead of the north with a difference of 134,994 votes.  The APC has a clear majority in the western region, but this region is not thought of as a stronghold because the APC has never won nearly 75% of the total votes needed to make up for the significant vote differential between the southeast and the northern region...Therefore, the coming election is a clear winning for the SLPP with a probably first round winning

Ghanaians have embarked on destroying Sierra Leone's ecosystem

Ghana is the most intolerable country for foreign Africans to live in after South Africa. We learned about them protesting the Chinese loudly a few years ago when they started gold mining along their major rivers. They bemoaned the damage that mining had done to their rivers, and it was even reported on by international media that Ghanaians would eventually need to import water in order to have pure water because of the level of contamination that had occurred in their rivers. Imagine that some of these same Ghanaians moved to Sierra Leone, colluded with some of the country's corrupt officials, and now threaten to devastate our rivers in the same way that the Chinese did to theirs. In fact, these same Ghanaians have contaminated the river Jong, which is known in the Mende language as "Teli yei" because to its dark color. Unfortunately, no leader has yet intervened to change the irritating circumstances. See video footage
