“We have patiently waited for over five (5) years with a godly hope of seeing the government utilizing part of the Parliamentary Approved Bailout Package of twenty-five billion Ghana cedis (GH₵25,000,000,000.00) to settle our lock-up monies but to no avail”.

The banking sector clean-up which was initiated some time in 2017 saw a reduction in the number of banks from 34 to 23, whilst 347 microfinance institutions, 15 savings and loans and 8 finances houses had their licences revoked.

Unfortunately, the business capital of some members of Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association got locked up in a number of financial institutions which suffered the Financial Sector Clean-up Exercise.
