Danquah Institute, a policy think-tank, has responded to claims of playing a role in the collapse of banks in Ghana.
According to the institute, it had no hand in the collapse of banks owned by Dr Kwabena Duffuor or Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom.
Until the collapse of their banks, the two men owned uniBank Ghana Limited and GN Bank.

Per a report by Starrfm.com.gh, the statement from the institute is in reaction to a video that has gone viral on social media.
The video reportedly indicates that the institute played a role in collapsing the banks in order to weaken their support for opposition parties.
Richard Ahiagbah, the executive director of the Danquah Institute, said the claims are false.
He explained that they are part of efforts by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to paint the government black.
Ahiagbah went on to say that the claims are false, a complete fabrication, and distortion of the facts.
To him, even though the institute has no idea about the origin of the video, it is convinced the attempt is consistent with NDC’s propaganda.
