Most Ghana CEOs sleep with their workers – Former UT Bank Boss

Former CEO of the UT Bank, Prince Kofi Amoabeng, has condemned the tendency of some managing directors and chief executive officers in the country to take advantage of their workers sexually.

In an interview on Accra-based Starr FM’s Morning Starr on Friday, Mr Amoabeng said the practice was distasteful, adding that he had personally sacked members of his staff who engaged in amorous relationships.

Mr Amoabeng said: “Do you know that in Ghana, it is almost a norm that a lot of MDs decide that they would sleep with somebody and if the person wants to keep their job, how can they tell their MD or their immediate boss that I won’t allow you and some of them are married but they still take advantage of these things, I don’t want to see any of these things.

“It’s not good and I find that African men, especially tend to exploit the younger female either to get a job, to get promotion or to be appraised or things like that so I don’t encourage it and therefore there is a policy at UT that you don’t have relationships in the company.

“And I have sacked people for going contrary to that…you cannot start a relationship with another staff, if you think you are falling in love with someone then one would have to leave."

In the wide-ranging interview with Starr FM’s Nii Arday Clegg, Mr Amoabeng also revealed that although he is a Christian who believes in God, he does not pay tithes.
