The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) says it will be making a formal request to Vodafone Ghana to list on the local bourse.
According to the Ghana Stock Exchange, the rules that applied to MTN to list on the GSE should also be applied to Vodafone.
Managing Director of the Ghana Stock Exchange, Kofi Yamoah made the disclosure when addressing the media in Accra on Thursday.
According to him, any telecom provider acquiring the 4G license should be made to list on the local bourse.
Mr Yamoah said, "I don't believe that Ghana still has significant ownership in Vodafone and the indicators are clear, Ghanaians have to own the shares properly."
Kofi Yamoah indicated that he had a meeting with the Minister of Communications and one of the deputies and begun a discussion on the matter.
"I met the Minister and Deputy on a different matter but this came up and we had an understanding that moving forward they will be pressed upon to come on the market, they have been in the country for more than ten years," he noted.
Vodafone acquired a 4G license early this year as part of its strategy to expand the business.
