The purported new currency notes that made rounds on social media was just a school project, a graphic designer has revealed.
Reports over the weekend indicated that the Bank of Ghana was going to release new currency notes in GH¢30, GH¢100 and GH¢200 denominations.
The Central Bank has however denied such reports, describing the notes as “fake.”
The designer, Holison Adiku who studied graphic and web design at IMPC in 2011 posted on his facebook page that the notes were his school project “way back in 2011.”
“I just shared a project work I did way back at IPMC 2011 as a Graphic designer proud of his work …….. someone just took advantage of my post to make news.It did not even cross my mind this would cause bad rumours against the government…,”
Adiku further apologised for any “inconveniences” he might have caused through his work.
