The memo, dated May 13, 2019, and titled “Report of Pre-tertiary Certificates of 2017 Clerical New Hires” was from the Human Source Department of the bank to the Deputy Managing Director, Functions.
In accordance to the memo, out of 434 employed in the 2016/2017 year, only 277 had credits in both of those English and Arithmetic, but 141 did not make a credit in both or each subjects, while five (5) unsuccessful to post any WASSCE certificates and 10 submitted only Experienced Entrance Exams Outcomes.
So those people up for the sack incorporate the 141 who do not have credits in both Mathematics and English or both of those, the 5 who failed to submit their WASSCE success and individuals with Mature Entrance success.
“Per the proposed roadmap, the appointments of those who do not possess the minimal of a credit in English and Arithmetic should to be terminated,” the memo claimed.
