Fidelity Bank has denied aiding Pastor Daniel Obinim of the International Godway Church to launder money to outside the country.
In a response to Assin North MP Kennedy Agaypong’s allegations that it is colluding with Bishop Obinim to engage in money laundering, the bank said it has always complied with all applicable Bank of Ghana requirements with respect to foreign exchange transactions.
In a statement, it said “Our attention has been drawn to some statements made by Hon. Kennedy Agyapong on Net 2 TV alleging that Bishop Daniel Obinim is using the Bank to engage in Money Laundering.
“The Bank wishes to state on record and assure all stakeholders that it has always complied with all applicable Bank of Ghana requirements with respect to foreign exchange transactions. We are unable to comment on individual customer transactions”, the statement explained.
The Assin Noth MP had threatened the indigenous bank to bring it down if it does not act on the allegations brought against Bishop Obinim.
