“Our end of service package has still not been paid for both Capital and UT Bank staff.
Before the closed down, some of us had leave days left that we were told were converted to cash but that has not been done,” he stated.
He went on to say that his heart goes out to the employees of the now Consolidated Bank of Ghana (CBG), there have been some challenges since the announcement of the merger on August 1, 2018.
The Bank of Ghana (BoG) announced the collapse of five local banks, Sovereign Bank, Construction Bank, Beige Bank, uniBank and Royal Bank.
The CBG, which is 100% state owned, was thus formed, with the assurance that it has enough resources to do business.
