Ghana’s inflation rate for September reduced by 2%

3 min read

 

Inflation for the month of September 2023 fell to 38.1% from the 40.1% recorded in August 2023. According to figures from the Ghana Statistical Service, both food and non-food inflation dropped. Whilst food inflation declined to 49.4% from the 51.9% recorded in August 2023, non-food inflation also decreased to 29.3% from the 30.9% recorded in August 2023. Inflation for locally produced items was estimated at a rate of 37.3% while that of imported products was 39.9%. The month-on-month inflation between August 2023 and September 2023 was, however, 1.9%. Government Statistician, Professor Samuel Kobina Annim, attributed the decline to the tight monetary policy measures by the Bank of Ghana.

🚩The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has said that the delay in payment of bailout funds to affected customers of Blackshield Fund Management Company Limited (formerly Gold Coast Fund Management Limited) is not due to refusal from the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to release the funds. In a statement issued by the Commission on October 10, it explained that the “delay is principally due to the legal action by Blackshield/Gold Coast contesting the liquidation petition brought by the Official Liquidator (Office of the Registrar of Companies) at the request of SEC following the revocation of licences.” The Commission however said it will continue to support the Official Liquidator in pursuing the liquidation petition in court.
