ACCRA, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo on Tuesday named the co-founder of investment bank Databank as Finance Minister and a former vice-president of the Bank of New York, Boakye Agyarko, as Energy Minister, a government statement said.

The appointments were part of a cabinet list issued on Tuesday, three days after Akufo-Addo was sworn in to a four-year term leading Ghana, a West African country that produces gold, oil and cocoa. (Reporting by Kwasi Kpodo; Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg and Emma Farge)
