“Fidelity Bank was a tenant in the Adwoa Adjeiwaa building from the 1st of February, 2008 until the 31st of January, 2008 when the Bank, after opting not to renew its tendency, vacated the building on its own accord and handed over the premises upon the expiry of its tenancy. During the period of its tenancy of the Adwoa Adjeiwaa building till date, Fidelity Bank has never been indebted and is not in any way indebted to Akwasi Boakye Osei or Ghana Heights Limited, which company was the Bank’s landlord.
