“My source indicates that most banks that collapses are as a result of over-ambitious employees who want to get rich out of those banks, some buys taxis, houses whiles other uses the bank’s money to establish their own businesses. I’m sending sound and stern caution to any employee of my Bank that any attempt will be signing their untimely death warrant” he said.
