The management of the Agricultural Development Bank has described as illegal a sit-down strike declared by its workers.

The staff union of the bank declared that it embark 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.

In a statement issued by the Communications and Public Affairs Unit of the bank, it has described the announcement by the workers as untrue.

Below is the full statement

"Agricultural Development Bank Limited wishes to inform and assure its numerous cherished customers and the general public that all its Branches and head office departments are operating and are opened for business and rendering all banking and customer services.

Management’s attention has been drawn to stories in the media about a supposed illegal sit-down strike by staff of our Bank being orchestrated by UNICOF.

Management wishes to inform the general public the announcement is untrue.

We hereby inform all cherished customers that the Bank is opened to business today and all its customers are encouraged to enter any of our over 78 branches to transact business."
