The guest speaker for the occasion, Honorable Michael Amaoh Awuku, the Municipal Chief Executive of Atwima Kwabiagya District, encouraged the public not to be troubled with the problems that have plagued the banking sector in recent times and that these actions by the Central Bank are to weed out fraudulent and weak financial Institutions to make the banking system stronger and resilient to serve the general public better.
