Groupe Nduom Calls Out Bank of Ghana for ‘Wildly Inaccurate” Information

In August 2019, the Bank of Ghana (BoG) revoked GN Bank's license, citing severe regulatory violations. Groupe Nduom, the parent company of GN Bank, has consistently disputed this decision.

Groupe Nduom has officially disputed the Bank of Ghana’s (BoG) narrative regarding the license revocation of GN Savings in 2019.

In a statement released on June 16, 2024, Groupe Ndoum contested BoG’s insolvency claims made about GN Savings, citing flawed information and demanded the restoration and upgrade of GN Savings’ license.

The company’s leadership urged BoG to acknowledge the mistake, correct it, and settle the GHS 7.1 billion debt owed to the Groupe.

With this money, customers will be paid and GN Savings will have enough capital to become a universal bank once again,” it stated

Some five years after, on June 14, 2024, the Bank of Ghana (BoG) defended its decision to revoke GN Bank’s license in 2019.

The Central Bank asserted that GN Bank’s disregard for key financial regulations and banking standards undermined its financial stability and  as a result, it will not be able to restore GN’s banking license to operate.
