The current Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta is one of the co-founders of the investment company.
Ponkoh has accused the NPP government of deliberately collapsing uniBank, owned by former Finance Minister Dr. Kwabena Duffour, all because he is a member of the opposition NDC party.

The Bank of Ghana (BoG) on August 1, 2018, announced that it had merged Unibank and four other banks under a new name Consolidated Bank of Ghana (CBG), with government committing GHC 450 million to support it.
According to the governor of the Central Bank, Ernest Addison, the merger was crucial because the five banks including Unibank were in critical financial distress and that it will “help ensure that the banking sector maintains a strong indigenous presence.”
Speaking to host Kwame Adinkra on Kumasi based Abusua FM’s morning show, Ponkoh slammed Ken Ofori Atta and the NPP government for dealing with Dr. Kwabena Duffour as an enemy as far as the collapse of Unibank is concerned.
He indicated that Ofori Atta will have a taste of his own bitter medicine given to Dr. Kwame Duffuor when the NDC returns to power in 2021, where Databank Financial Services will go down.”
