He added that some of the benefits due them are corporate or organizational welfare contributions which they are entitled to. According to them, they are yet to receive these benefits and packages.

In August 2017, the Bank of Ghana oversaw the takeover of UT and Capital Banks by GCB Bank in a purchase and assumption agreement.

This was because the 2 banks faced serious liquidity challenges at the time which affected the continuous existence and the financial industry altogether.
