Workers of Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) have called off their day old sit down strike which began on Thursday.

The staff union of ADB on Thursday 28, May 2015 embarked on a nationwide sit down strike to press home their demands for the removal of the Managing Director, Stephen Kpordzih and the dissolution of the Board.

The staff union said they have been compelled to take the decision due to government’s unwillingness to ask the MD and the board to step aside as the Bank of Ghana investigates allegations of financial malfeasance and conflict of interest leveled against them.

A letter from the union leaders directing the staff to comply with the industrial said: “With regards to the Board and Managing Director’s refusal to step aside for a proper examination of issues of gross incompetence and corruption raised by the joint unions and the failure of the appointing authorities to nominate external investigators to support the BoG to unravel the truth, we hereby declare a sit-down protest starting on the 28th of May 2015 till our shareholders do the needful”.

Meanwhile, a statement released indicated that workers called off their strike after considering the effects of their action on customers.

“Dear colleagues…. in respect of the genuine support our customers have given us in this quest for truth, we at this time ask you to resume work to serve our cherished customers,”the statement said.

The statement further indicated their [workers] resolve to continually strive for truth. “We hereby humbly ask our shareholders to respect the sanctity of corporate governance. We will continue to strive for truth, God being our guide.”
