The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has promised to investigate the Menzgold scandal when elected as president in the December 7, 2020 general elections.
Addressing NDC supporters in Tarkwa at the launch the party’s campaign in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem constituency on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, Mr Mahama said the next NDC government will use all legitimate means to retrieve the locked up funds of Menzgold customers.
He was concerned that the government has made no significant effort to retrieve the customer’s money.
“What is so special about NAM 1 that Akufo-Addo is shielding him? Why do you unleash the police on innocent customers while NAM 1 walks free,” he fumed.
James Agyenim-Boateng, NDC Campaign Spokesperson, indicated this in a press statement on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.
Following an order from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to suspend aspects of its operations in 2018, Menzgold has since struggled to pay its customers their monies.
Mr. Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM1 was accused of running a Ponzi scheme.
“The man who took the money is there unbothered. When the Menzgold customers say they are going to demonstrate, police are sent to stop them,” Mahama said.
He therefore assured that the next NDC administration would ensure that Menzgold customers are paid back their money.
“God willing the NDC government will come and when it comes, we will look into the Menzgold issues. Those who took your money, we will chase them, retrieve the money and share it to you,” he said.
