Most CEOs Bonk Their Workers – Kofi Amoabeng

Prince Kofi Amoabeng
Former CEO of UT Bank Prince Kofi Amoabeng has stated that it is becoming a norm in Ghana for Chief Executives and Managing Directors (MDs) of several companies to have affairs with their workers.

‘Do you know that in Ghana it is almost a norm that a lot of MDs decide that they would sleep with somebody (staff)? And if the person wants to keep their job, how can they tell their MD or their immediate boss that I won’t allow you? And some of them are married but they still take advantage of these things. I don’t want to see any of these things,’ Amoabeng told Morning Starr host Nii Arday Clegg on Friday.

The retired military man added that during his tenure as UT boss, it was against the rules and regulations for staff to engage in any form of sexual relationship.

He added that he had on several occasions sacked UT staff for engaging in amorous relationships.

‘It’s not good and I find that African men especially tend to exploit the younger female either to get a job, to get promotion or to be appraised or things like that, so I don’t encourage it and therefore there is a policy at UT that you don’t have relationships in the company.

‘And I have sacked people for going contrary to that…You cannot start a relationship with another staff, if you think you are falling in love with someone then one would have to leave [the company].’

Prince Kofi Amoabeng also revealed that he does not pay tithe and will never honour the Christian rite for personal reasons.

A tithe is one-tenth of annual produce or earnings, formerly taken as a tax for the support of the church and clergy.

The president of UT Holdings said he believes in God and goes to church ‘once in a long while if there is a wedding or funeral’ but was quick to add that he is not a ‘tither’.

‘I don’t pay tithe. I would not give 10 percent and nobody can force me to give 10 percent of my money to anybody. So I don’t pay tithe. I do all sorts of philanthropic jobs myself. I see where there is the need for me to help and I help.

‘I don’t have to give it to somebody who then decides where to put the money. So it is my hard earned money and I should put it where I want to put it,’ he told host Nii Arday Clegg.

Despite his posturing towards the payment of tithe, the former CEO of UT Bank opined: ‘That’s me. I’m not saying payment of tithe is bad. I’m not here to say don’t pay tithe. No. I think it depends on what you see the church for and what the church means to you and does for you.’

‘I don’t give a damn,’ Amoabeng said when asked how he would feel when he died, adding, ‘I don’t think about death at all.’
