Properties worth millions of cedis, ranging from cars to office stationery and ledgers, were rotten beyond recognition in the video sighted by YEN.com.gh.

Some portions of the building, including the doors and windows, were broken, and the remaining parts of the main structure began to develop cracks.

The compound had also been overtaken by weeds begging for some serious mowing.

The visit to the facility forms part of Dr Nduom's broader campaign to get his revoked banking licensed back.

Below is the video shared on X by @fanti_boy.

The beginning of the end for GN Bank

The Bank of Ghana revoked the operating licenses of some 23 savings and loans companies and finance houses including the GN Bank in a ruthless clean-up exercise of the country's financial sector.

Management of the GN Bank subsequently filed a suit at the Accra High Court challenging the legality of the central bank's actions.

The Accra High Court, however, presided over by Justice Gifty Addo Adjei reaffirmed the decision of the Bank of Ghana in a ruling delivered this year, January 2024.

Before the revocation of its license, the GN Bank was one of the top-performing banks in Ghana, with offices dotted across the country even in the most rural areas.
