Embattled majority shareholder of now defunct Heritage Bank Seidu Agongo has said he is not a novice in the business arena and cannot be pushed around as though he was a common criminal.
‘’I have been in business since 2001 and I have since founded about fifteen (15) entities in areas such as Real Estate, Manufacturing, Agriculture, Media, Commodities, Pharmaceuticals and Financial Services that currently directly employ at least 3,500 Ghanaians” he opined.
Mr. Agongo also described as lies, assertions by the Bank of Ghana that he was at some point, the subject of a fit and proper person test.
He said ‘’for the records, I was never made aware by the Bank of Ghana at any point whatsoever that I was the subject of a fit and proper person test by the Central Bank and I had never been asked any questions or clarifications by the said Central Bank contrary to the impressions now created by the Bank of Ghana. In fact, it is not known to me when the said ‘fit and proper person’ enquiry or assessment began and when it ended. I had not been given a hearing yet my fate had been sealed in this hostile manner by the Bank of Ghana’’.
