Mr John James Amoah, the founder of the Union, appealed to the Credit Union Association (CUA) Headquarters to ensure that Parliament approves the law establishing the Ghana Cooperative Credit Union Banking to enable credit Unions in the country operate banking.
He said most of the Credit Unions had adequate capital base, resources and facilities to operate as banks.
