Please bear in mind that when you look at the bare facts of this case no one but a so-called Man of God would be getting a pass. If you are not qualified to be the Board Chairman of a bank, then decline the role. Don't forget that whilst much of this has only just become public knowledge, Capital Bank was taken over last year and Mensah Otabil has been aware of all the facts for a year. He has had plenty of time to prepare a response. He was a shareholder and his church was a shareholder. He watched while this struggling bank got liquidity support from the BoG and then authorised some of that money to be used to allocate first and business class tickets to board members. Huh?? In what world is that a perk? Reverends were all over these banks. Reverends in Ghana have become like offshore tax havens- opaque, used as fronts for nefarious financial activities and places where the rich and shady feel they can park their money with no questions asked! I give him no pass because he's a man of God. He's just a man.
