The management of the Agricultural Development Bank has described the announcement by staff to embark on sit-down strike as illegal.
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.
