Asantehene-rapid news gh

In order to transform the banking sector, the Asantehene , Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has advocated for stronger cooperation between commercial banks and the Bank of Ghana (BoG).

In order for the nation to speed the pace of finding a long-term solution to the current economic issues, he claimed that was essential.

The Asantehene delivered the counsel when Bernard Appiah Gyebi, the newly appointed managing director of Prudential Bank Ghana Limited, paid him a visit at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.

He advised the newly appointed Managing Director to build on the strong foundation his predecessors had established by tirelessly tending to the bank.

Additionally, he counseled him to further innovate the bank’s operations, especially in light of the Domestic Debt Exchange Programme’s impact on the financial industry.

The Asantehene praised the bank for continuing to help the economy and businesses in general.


To properly identify himself to the King as the new MD of the Bank was the goal of the visit.

In order for the bank to support SMEs, notably Small and Medium-Size Enterprises, he emphasized the necessity for the MD to launch a deposit mobilization effort.

Astonished to see the Asanehene, Mr. Gyebi conveyed his sincere thanks to Asanteman for helping the bank conduct business in the Ashanti Region.


He thanked the King for the insightful counsel he had provided to the bank’s management ever since it had been founded and told Otumfuo that the bank’s prosperity would not have been possible without Asanteman’s prayers, support, and patronage.

Mr. Gyebi also expressed the bank’s gratitude to the Asantehene for being a dependable client.

He promised the Asantehene that the bank would operate brilliantly while he served as the MD and that he could always rely on him for his wise counsel.

Akosua Boahen, the Head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs, Thomas Dwomoh-Ameyaw, the Acting Regional Manager, Daniel Kissiedu, the Executive Head of Operations, Thomas Broni, the Executive Head of Business Development, Ebow Quayson, the Executive Head of Marketing, Naomi Adjei-Twum, and the Board Member Daniel Kissiedu were all present.
