Just weeks into his new job as Managing Director, Ernest Mawuli Agbesi is taking an axe to the biggest state-run bank that saw a decline in profit in 2015.
The bank's profit before tax declined from 382.436 million cedis in 2014 to 350.276 in 2015. Additionally, its profits after tax dropped from 270.057 million cedis to 244.735 million cedis between the same period.

The Bank has estimated staff strength of 22,000.
