“I made phone calls to selected commercial customers in Kumasi, Tarkwa, Tamale, Swedru and Wa to solve their specific problems and who all agreed to start making deposits again.  I participated in a meeting of all managers of GN Bank branches in the Greater Accra Region to encourage them to deliver exceptional customer service even in the face of the challenges that arise from time to time,” Dr Nduom stated.

According to him, he explained the new “local/regional bank” concept. This, he said, ensured  that customer funds would  support banking activities in the local and regional areas that generate the deposits.

Dr Nduom also used the opportunity to plead with GN Bank customers to keep deposits already with the bank there to keep the foundation strong. 

“They understood this.  They themselves underscored the need for the bank to continue on since it is the only one that gives them the convenience they need nationally.  I explained to them efforts being made to bring on board new shareholders who will bring new money to the bank,” he noted.

Today understands, the feedback from the customers was very positive as they understood his point of view,   and was excited about his assurance to them.

“I talked to them about efforts being made by the government to pay contractors and the positive impact it will make on GN Bank.   Also discussed Bank of Ghana moves to strengthen the banking sector.  I am convinced that GN Bank will be in full strength at the end of this month,” he noted.
