Following Bank of Ghana’s decision to collapse two banks in 2017, last year, a former area manager for UT Bank, in Accra Edem Adimado has revealed that most of them are suffering due to the collapse of the Banks.
He noted that most of them are suffering but for him, he is managing, stressing that, he is now an uber driver although he can’t compare the Uber job to the banking job.
Speaking on Happy FM ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ with Kwame Afrifa Mensah, over their condition after a year The Bank of Ghana collapsed UT and Capital bank, he detailed, “Things are very difficult . . . , I told myself if there is no job, I have to go into Uber driving. I use to be a manager for seven UT branches in Accra because I was experienced. The Uber cars are all over, so we don’t get enough. You can get about GH1500 a month as compared to when I was a banker. I used to get more. I am managing, after all, at the end of the day, I can take care of my family. I hold a masters degree and I have been working in the banking sector for fourteen years,” he said.
Answering a question about securing a job in other financial institutions in regards to their background having a CV to show as well, he stated, “ If you go to a place and they find out that you are from one of the collapsed banks, why will they accept you? I consider myself fortunate because some of us are really suffering.”
“We applied for loans whiles the bank was active, but unfortunately the banks collapsed. We are praying for even half of the loan to be given to us. At least some of our colleagues can start some business since we haven’t received anything yet. We have issued a statement to the presidency to help us in this condition” he indicated.
