Aggrieved customers of the defunct gold dealership firm, Menzgold Company Limited have resumed efforts to get their locked-up funds released to them by seeking help from parliament.
The customers want parliament to investigate the factors that caused the closure of the company.
They are unhappy about the delay in the prosecution of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM1.
Fred Forson, spokesperson for the aggrieved customers, called on government to cooperate with Parliament to bring an end to the case.
“We call on Parliament to investigate the closure of Menzgold including the role played by SEC and EOCO as well as the bank accounts of the CEO and board members of Menzgold and Brew Marketing Companies. The whereabouts of some 4000 kilograms of gold assets should also be investigated.”
“Ghana should as a matter of urgency treat the unresolved Menzgold issue as an emergency national catastrophe. We call on the government in the spirit and within the wind of cooperation blowing in parliament to work closely with the august house to find an amicable solution to this conundrum that customers find themselves. Finding a solution will end the extinction of over a million Ghanaians whose lives and very existence have been shut with the shutdown of Menzgold”, Fred Forson said during a presser in Accra.
