S&P Ratings said it views the moratorium as a ‘selective default’, and did not issue any outlook.

“We expect to lower our ratings on Ghana’s foreign currency issues to ‘D’ (default) if the government fails to make the next scheduled coupon payment on its commercial foreign currency debt,” the ratings agency said.
