Speaking to the media after a grand draw for the bank’s ongoing deposit and win a campaign, Mr. Ouzzani, said: “The Ghana banking sector went through some troubles, but the government and the central bank have really cleaned the banking sector.”

“With the capital increase that they have introduced, actually all the banks that are still operating we know that they are respectful of all the norms and regulations which have been introduced to make the banks strong. So, the existing 23 banks are stronger than the 35 that existed before,” he said.

Twenty-three other insolvent savings and loans companies and finance houses, and 347 microfinance firms were also declared insolvent.
