BoG Strikes: Two More Local Banks Targeted


The Central Bank is set to put two more local banks in administration this week, has learnt.

One of the banks is linked to a popular business-magnate while the other is alleged to have ties with a famous traditional authority.

According to sources, both banks are facing acute liquidity challenges and have been unable to deal with their problems despite regular support from the Central bank.

The two banks have further become risky because of the panic withdrawals they have suffered over the last few months.

Management of the affected banks are said to have received notification of intention from the Central Bank.

The move comes after the Central bank appointed an advisor to  Sovereign Bank Limited last week.

“The Advisor is expected to help monitor the bank’s recapitalization efforts and implementation of governance reforms agreed with the Bank of Ghana. The Advisor will stay in the bank until otherwise advised by the Bank of Ghana, and will furnish the Bank of Ghana with a status report on the bank as frequently as the Bank of Ghana may require.
