The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, has assured Ghanaians that former president John Dramani Mahama will pay all depositors whose monies were locked up during the central bank’s banking cleanup.
According to the NDC official, Mr. Mahama will ensure that anyone whose money is locked up, is paid in full.
Speaking at the NDC’s Weekly Press Briefing on Monday, June 22, 2020, Mr. Gyamfi also added that when elected into power in December 2020, John Mahama will ensure and restore “indigenous Ghanaian participation in the financial sector”.

“His Excellency John Dramani Mahama is committed to fixing the mess that has been created by the mild administration of President Akufo-Addo in all sectors of the nation and in all facets of our lives. He is committed to delivering transformational leadership needed to create prosperity and wealth for all,” Sammy Gyamfi said.
The NDC flagbearer had earlier promised that his next government will make sure they refund depositors’ monies in the shortest possible time if elected into power in the 2020 elections.
The Bank of Ghana has been involved in a massive cleansing exercise fo the sector from August 2017 to 2019.
The financial sector cleanup led to the collapse of nine universal banks, 347 microfinance companies, 39 microcredit companies or money lenders, 15 savings and loans companies, eight finance house companies, and two non-bank financial institutions.
