The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President John Dramani Mahama, says he never said he will pay all the affected customers of the defunct gold dealership company, Menzgold Ghana Ltd, their locked-up investments when the party wins this year’s elections on December 7.
In an interview on Starr 103.5 FM in Accra on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, he clarified that he only said they will investigate and find out the level of indebtedness. He added that anyone found guilty of any wrongdoing in the issue will be made to face the law.
This is in sharp contrast to another statement he made earlier, promising to go after the managers and directors of the company in order to retrieve the monies they collected from the customers. Mr Mahama, who was addressing a rally at Tarkwa in the Western Region, expressed disappointment in the government’s handling of the Menzgold issue. According to him, he had met with some members and leaders of the defunct Menzgold in Tarkwa where they (customers) discussed their challenges with him.
He added that he will pay all the affected customers of the defunct gold dealership company, in a report which was subsequently filed by Graphic Online.
