Consolidated Bank releases GH¢530 million for cocoa roads

The Consolidated Bank Ghana has released a total of GH¢530 million to Cocobod for the construction of cocoa roads, the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, has disclosed.

Mr. Ofori-Atta speaking on the floor of parliament on Monday, July 29, 2019, said the bank which was a creation at the instance of a collapse of some five local banks will play a major part in the construction of the roads in the cocoa-growing areas.

“We know that the foundation for growing businesses and creating jobs everywhere is a vibrant, well-governed, well-resourced, competitive financial services sector, operating under a stable economic regime. That is why we could not watch the sector collapsing, even if it meant slowing down for a year or so on some of our own scheduled programmes,” he stated.
