The management of the embattled Agricultural Development Bank, ADB, says the sit-down strike declared by its workers is illegal.
The workers have accused management of being corrupt and have rejected a bid by management to offload shares and sell its headquarters in Accra.
As a result, the workers today began an indefinite sit-down strike to demand the resignation of the bank’s Managing Director Stephen Kpordzih and its board members.
But a statement issued by the Communications and Public Affairs Unit of the bank, hours after the strike was declared, said “Management wishes to inform the general public the announcement is 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.
ISSUED BY THE COMMUNICATIONS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS UNIT
