The central bank did not make the names of the culprits public.

As part of due diligence processes during and post recruitment, those found to have presented forged documentation (including academic and professional certificates) are either dropped from the recruitment process or their services terminated if already on-boarded and on probation."

In a statement issued on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, the BoG also denied social media reports that it has sacked about 90% of its new recruits.

According to the Bank, that information in the public domain is false and meant to mislead and misinform the public.

It is not true that 90 percent of recently recruited staff were found to have presented fake certificates,” the BoG said.

The Bank of Ghana wishes to put on record that dismissals are a regular Human Resources management function for staff whose conduct is unsatisfactory or have committed an offence, as stipulated in the Bank’s handbook on Human Resource Policies,” the statement concluded.
