Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is under pressure by the Mills administration to resign from his post as the Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana.
The economist has at least a year more to serve the state as the Deputy Governor, based on a contract he struck with the state which expires in June 2010.
But the incoming administration said with his divergent political views, it would be politically incorrect to maintain him in that sensitive capacity.
The management expert took leave to contest the December general elections as the vice presidential candidate of Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to Joy News sources, a letter has been written to Dr. Bawumia to honourably resign from his post or face termination of appointment.
