Mr Nii Amanor Dodoo, a Senior Partner of audit firm KPMG, who served as the Receiver of now-defunct uniBank, has dragged the bank’s founder, Dr. Kwabena Duffour, and some 16 other entities to an Accra High Court some GHS 5billion they took from the bank.
Named as defendants are: HODA Holdings Limited, HODA Properties, Integrated Properties Limited, Alban Logistics Limited, Starlife Assurance, Bolton Portfolio Limited, Dr Kwabena Duffour II, Opoku-Gyamfi Boateng, Professor Newman Kwadwo-Kusi, Owusu Ansah Awere, Ekow Nyarko Dadzie-Dennis, Clifford Duke Mettle, Boatemaa Kakra Duffour-Nyarko, Kofi Kyereh Darkwah, Nana Boakye Asafu-Adjaye and Alex Gaddiel Buabeng.
The recently-established Consolidated Bank Ghana (CBG) Limited was morphed by fusing uniBank, The Construction Bank, The Royal Bank, The Beige Bank and Sovereign Bank, together.
In a related development, Dr Duffour, a few weeks ago, sued the BoG for collapsing uniBank along with the other banks on grounds of insolvency.
The former Minister of Finance and also former Governor of the Bank of Ghana, wants the High Court in Accra to order the Bank of Ghana to give him back his bank, according to the statement of claim.
In the suit filed on Monday, 20 August 2018, Dr Duffour is asking for an order of injunction restraining the Bank of Ghana from expropriating uniBank by its purported vesting of “good assets and liabilities” in Consolidated Bank Ghana Limited.
He also wants a declaration that the licence purportedly granted to the Consolidated Bank Ghana Limited was not granted in accordance with Act 930 and, therefore, “null and void.”
