Speaking in an interview with a cross-section of journalists at a customer appreciation event in Accra after a meeting of the Board of Directors, Dr Ibrahim said the Board was not opening up the bank to the public because of the recapitalisation issue.

Dr Ibrahim said while the Bank had received three offers to completely buy it out, the Board had chosen the option to list to offer an opportunity for Ghanaians to own a part of the company.

Mrs Christiana Olaoye, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, said the Energy Commercial Bank would meet the new minimum capital requirement before the December deadline.

The Bank of Ghana has mandated that all Banks increase shareholders’ funds to a minimum GHS400million before the end of 2018.

« We have already commenced the journey to recapitalization, and can assure you that we will reach our destination well before the date of 31stDecember set by the Regulator. We will also continue to grow our business in line with international best practices and procedures, » she said.

Mrs Olaoye said to serve customers better and earn your continued custom and loyalty, the Bank was continuously seeking to expand its product and service capabilities, offering end-to-end banking solutions across all facets of the value-delivery process.
