Former CEO of the UT bank Prince Kofi Amoabeng has stated that it is becoming a norm in Ghana for CEOs and Managing Directors of several companies to have an affair with their workers.
“Do you know that in Ghana, it is almost a norm that a lot of MDs decide that they would sleep with somebody, staff 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,” Amoabeng told Morning Starr host Nii Arday Clegg Friday.
The retired military man added that during his tenure as UT boss it was against the rules and regulations for staff to engage in any form of sexual relationship.
He added that he has on several occasions sacked UT staff for engaging in amorous relationships.
“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 [the company]”.
