Customers of collapsed financial institution MENZGOLD have finally announced voting for NDC’s Presidential candidate John Dramani Mahama in the soon coming December general elections.
The foregoing last-minute declaration is premised on what they described as a blatant failure of the part of the ruling party NPP as in effecting the retrieval and payment of their locked up funds.
At the press conference held on Sunday on Kumasi, affected customers openly chanted “Our blood our money! No JM no vote! If you want your money vote 2!”.
Apparently, highly peeved depositors have been woed by the assurance given by John Dramani Mahama which is the promise to investigate, confiscate NAM 1’s assets and pay all affected customers immediately he takes over as the President of Ghana”
They expressed massive interest in another assurance given by John Dramani Mahama that is paying their locked up investment even before investigations into the matter is over.
An extract of a press release read by the leader of the group (COALITION OF AGGRIEVED CUSTOMERS OF MENZGOLD, GHANA) Isaac Appiah reads;
” Our painstaking investigation on why government has failed since 2018 to bring NAM 1 to real justice and assist us in retrieving our locked up investment bring us to two main findings:
1. That Menzgold was a scheme carefully established by some people linked to the Akuffo Addo government whilst in opposition and it was mainly to achieve two objectives:
A. To raise money for political activities
2. To weaken the banking sector with its juicy returns on investment which lure many of the customers to pull their investment from the main stream banking institution to come and invest.”
They boldly stated in their press statement that ” We have a trust in former president John Dramani Mahama since he has the track record of solving such difficult problems when he is in government…
We have a choice to make between the one who collapsed our investment which has led to the death of over 80 innocent customers, whilst many are bed ridden and the one who did not but has given us hope. ”
“We therefore urge our customers to vote for President John Dramani Mahama since he has promised payment and outlined payment strategy for which customers have faith”.
Below is the press statement;
Coalition of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold, Ghana
Press Conference at Kumasi Cultural Centre
*Press Conference on Failure of Government to help us retrieve our Locked up investment*
Ladies and gentlemen of the press we thank you so much for attending upon our invitation.
Some two years ago , customers of Menzgold woke up to the reality of our investment locked up as a result of government directive through Security and Exchange Commission for a shut down of Menzgold company Ghana Limited. Several appeal to government to assist customers using the law ,,Act 929 to retrieve our hard earned investment have fallen on deaf ears . we have written petitions upon petitions , we have carried out series of public protest. Government has totally neglected our call and instead call us names as greedy people , and other printable ones that its not worthy repeating them
Perception on why Government has failed to prosecute Nam1
Our painstaking investigation on why government has failed since 2018 to bring Nam 1 to real justice and the assist in retrieving our locked up investment bring us to two main findings
1. That Menzgold was a scheme carefully established by the NPP and or its assigns whilst in opposition and it was mainly to achieve two purposes
A. to raise money for political activities
2. to weaken the banking sector with its juicy returns on investment which lure many of the customers to pull the investment from the main stream banking institutions to come and invest.
We again note that apart from His Excellency the President and his vice the next person with armed state security is Mr Nana Appiah Mensah , Nam 1, this thus raises our suspecion that menzgold is a creation of the NPP party and its officials ..
We also note that all the Dubai story as we were told by government officials were all fake and make belief stories, CID and its boss lied to us.
The Deputy Attorney General, Mr Kpemka supposed visit to Dubai were all fake and we challenge Mr Kpemka to published the name of the prison cell in which he met Nam1. It will be recalled that after the Deputy AG visit to Dubai , the gave us a fake 2nd February 2019 appearance in court date which turned out to be fake. The CID later admitted this as error
Ladies and Gentleman, we have been scammed by Nam1 and his npp government collaborators.
Again, government deliberate failure to confiscate the assets and bank accounts of Nam1 before and immediately after the shut down of Menzgold also indicates that this NPP government is complicit in the Menzgold issues and thus they were the real owners of the Menzgold scam. How on earth will a government worth its sort collapse a company you claim was operating illegally but failed to freeze its assets knowing very well that it has collected huge sums of money from your citizens?
Even after the Court order to freeze the assets as customers and good citizens we help the CID and EOCO to trace many of the assets of Menzgold , for two years what has happened to those assets whilest over 80 lives wear away?
Where are the 400kg of gold EOCO seized?
The reckless abandoned with which Security and Exchange Commission went about with closure of Menzgold without thinking about the innocent customers even in the face of ACT 929 section 123 further suggest government was deliberately conniving with Nam1 to scam Ghanaians.
It is important to note that before the shut down of Menzgold, BoG, SEC conducted a research in which they concluded among other things to ensure that customers investments were protects, however SEC failed to adhered to its own roadmap as to how they should proceed.
The tragedy of this government is not only the pain it has caused us but also its tacit approval to watch Nam1 breeding many other scams and perpetuating it on only Menzgold customers whilst government look on unconcerned. Some of Nam 1 scams in recent times are Payboy, ivex Minerals , Menzgold global, zallywood land for sale, Menzgold Prado, his latest scam is that he is inviting customers to book appointment with him and for every appointment customers are to pay GHC5000
All such things cannot happen if Nam1 is not powerful person in the npp administration?
As customers we have knocked every door of the state including the President of the Republic and from the recent utterances by the Vice President Dr Mahamud Bawumia labelling us as having invested in a 419 unregistered company even though his party was a huge beneficiary of Menzgold spoils, we have no option than to ask our members and family members and friends to vote for Mr John Mahama on 7th December since he has demonstrated compassion and outlined the road map of retrieving our investment for us. We there have huge trust in Former President Mahama since he has the track record o solving such difficult problems when he is in government. We can easily remember how his government resolved Single Spine Salary issues and the pragmatic steps they took in terms of policy to resolve the banking and energy sector debt by introducing ESLA levy which to deal with the challenges in the banking and energy sectors
We on this day commit ourselves with our families to go all out to campaign for the re election of Mr John Mahama and ask that all our customers should vote for our money on 7th December by voting for No 2 which is John Dramani Mahama and all his Parliamentary candidates so that together they can initiate policies that will lead to the payment of our money
