However, according to Frank Aboagye, the Receiver continues to give the impression that most of the depositors have been paid.
A report by citibusinessnews.com shows that another client, Halimatu Salifu, revealed she has also been facing challenges in recent times.
She stated that “it’s been hard. In fact, this is my mat. I came here today to sleep here until I get my money. I have been ejected from my room; I cannot feed my family; I’m suffering.”
The Receiver of the microfinance and savings and loans company, Eric Nana Nipah, has indicated that there were some challenges with respect to the acquisition of data of customers. The delay reportedly extended the validation process of some customers of some defunct companies.
In other news, some customers of the defunct First Allied Savings and Loans Ltd. company have raised concerns about the mode of payment by the Receiver, Eric Nana Nipah, via the Consolidated Bank of Ghana (CBG).
Cases of miscommunication and surprises were recorded when some customers, who had received text messages to visit the bank on Thursday, February 27, 2020, were informed that their monies would be paid in bonds.
The customers claimed that they were informed those who had funds beyond GHc70,000 locked up would receive GHc50,000 in cash and the rest in 5-year-bonds.
