The campaign began in the Central Region on Sunday May 26, 2024 with a visit to old offices in Kasoa Amanfrom, Awutu Breku, Afranse, Gomoa Potsin, Mnakessim, Biriwa, Cape Coast and Takoradi, among others.

Dr Nduom was accompanied by some management and staff of Groupe Nduom.

On arrival at some locations, the team were shocked to find offices in total state of disrepair.

Some offices had had their windows and doors removed, others had lost their roofs, and a few others in Kasoa Amanfrom and Awutu Breku had been taken over by churches.

Dr Nduom expresses worry over neglect of customers

Dr Nduom throughout his stops across the region rehashed his concern about the financial exclusion of his former customers following the bank’s collapse.

He noted that following the exit of the bank in 2019 as part of the Banking Sector Cleanup, no other financial institution has taken up the mantle to enter the underserved financial markets to enable former customers participate in the formal financial system.

He said his bank had been actively engaged in addressing the financial challenges faced by people living in underserved areas by offering them a viable and safer saving alternative as well as other financial services to improve their economic opportunities.

He argued that his bank had been in good standing prior to the revocation of his licence and most of the company’s funds were locked up in government funded projects as loans and advances to contractors.

He blamed the government’s failure to pay back contractors on time for his company’s insolvency.

He has urged all others affected by the Banking Sector Cleanup to join his campaign to resuscitate the bank’s licence and that of other financial institutions.

He hopes that the next government will return the bank's licence even if the incumbent government refuses.

He assured customers that he would renew the bank with much energy and vigor to become a leading bank in the country once again.
