New Era Africa (NERA), A Civil Society Group has petitioned parliament to conduct a bi-partisan public enquiry into the recent banking crisis.
According to NERA, the cost of seven defunct banks in the past one year will be borne by people of Ghana, hence it will prudent for the people’s representative to probe the issues that led to the collapse of the banks.
Reports suggest that the seven collapsed banks could cost close to 10 billion cedis.
The petition signed by Bernard Owusu-Mensa the president of NERA stated that the enquiry could help avert acts that may lead to collapse of banks in the future.
It said, we are confident that when the House resumes, this will be a top priority and we expect that the committee that will be formed will do a comprehensive public enquiry covering all actors involved.
