Ghpage.com present you with the 7 reasons cited by Bank of Ghana for the takeover.

1. uniBank persistently maintained a capital adequacy (CAR) ratio below zero (currently negative 24%), making it technically insolvent. This contravened the 10% minimum CAR required.

2. uniBank suffered liquidity shortfalls and consistently breached its cash reserve requirement. As a result, UniBank relied extensively on liquidity support of over GHS 2.2 billion from the Bank of Ghana over the past two years to meet its recurring liabilities.
