ACCRA (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund has suggested to Ghana's government that it request an extension to a three-year $918 million aid programme due to end in April 2018, the Fund's Ghana representative Natalia Koliadina said on Thursday.

"We have suggested to the authorities the possibility of extending the programme following a significant setback in implementation last year," she told Reuters.
