Controversial legal Practitioner and Social Commentator, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, says the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is slowly losing political power.
According to him, if Menzgold goes down, NPP will go down as well because NDC suffered the same fate with DKM and God is Love in the 2016 election.
Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, Lawyer Ampaw reiterated that, he does not expect NPP to keep quiet on matters like this, because people are suffering and dying so he expects the government to take drastic measures in dealing with the issue.
He urged Ghanaians especially NPP members on social media to stop ridiculing menzgold customers.
“The insults and the name calling are too much. For instance Finance Minister referring to them as greedy and footsoldiers calling them all sort of names on social media," he said.
The embattled lawyer is blaming government, Bank of Ghana (BoG) and Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta for deliberately attempting to collapse Menzgold Company.
"Those saying Menzgold Company was operating illegally should refrain from that propaganda. Were they not paying taxes and SSNIT to government? Can a fraudster pay tax and SSNIT to government?
"Government was aware of Menzgold operations. Government and Bank of Ghana are deliberately collapsing Menzgold because their operations are allegedly collapsing the Bank of Ghana and Ken Ofori Atta's Databank,” he alleged.
Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, however, charged Menzgold customers to stop listening to lies and support Nana Appiah mensah.
I Have Ghc2.4bn Locked Up At Menzgold – Mawrice Ampaw
Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has revealed that he has close to 2.4bn Ghana Cedis locked up at Menzgold, the gold trading firm that has been shut down by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Ghana.
According to him he is not bothered about his money been lock up because he benefited a lot from the Gold company.
Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, nn aggrieved Maurice Ampaw indicated that there is nothing wrong with people who invested with Menzgold because nothing showed the company was not operating illegally since Bank of Ghana and the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) did not speak about their illegality.
Mr. Ampaw argued that, if institutions funded and mandated to monitor the authenticity of all investor companies failed to take any action against MenzGold for five years, then such people must be held responsible and not the company.
“I am not worried about my money but rather thinking about the ordinary Ghanaian who went for loan to invest, and many customers whose monies are looked up at Menzgold due to irresponsible act of an institution who refused to monitor their activities,” he stressed.
