CEO of defunct UT Bank in the person of Captain Prince Kofi Amoabeng (Rtd), has for the first time opened up about his relationship with Ghana’s incumbent finance minister, Ken Ofori Atta.
According to Captain Prince Kofi Amoabeng (Rtd), Ken Ofori-Atta requested a loan from UT Financial Services before the collapse of the institution, although he wasn’t a minister at the time.
In an exclusive interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’, Capt. Kofi Amoabeng(Rtd) authenticated the claim saying, “I don’t lie or you think they will say it’s untrue. It’s not just about me. I wasn’t personally giving out the loans. I had a system and a structure and institution that granted the loans, so my entire staff were aware. So, it wasn’t a situation of I took him to a room like it was done secretly. No! This is a UT Financial Services issue”.
In a related development, Captain Prince Kofi Amoabeng (Rtd), has authored a new book christened ‘THE UT STORY: Humble beginnings’ highlighting the successes and twilight of his company.
