Government has loathed the insensitive and partisan politicization that has characterised discussions of the Menzgold Saga by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)
About a week ago, the courts in the name of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ordered the arrest of NAM1 and all other directors of the company.
International Police (INTERPOL) was put on red alert but police in Dubai later informed their Ghanaian counterparts that Mr Mensah had been in their custody since Friday, December 7, 2018.
However, members of the NDC accused the Akufo-Addo-led government of directly complicit in the conundrum customers of Menzgold Ghana Limited have been plunged into.
According to the Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, only a handful of the public would have invested in Menzgold if not for the photographs of the President and NAM1 circulating on social media and other news media platforms.
Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, at a press briefing reiterated that government remains resolute in bringing offenders to book while ensuring that the law takes its course in the matter.
“Government remains focused that the security agencies having received reports from customers that they believe to have been defrauded by false pretences shall employ all powers of the state including the issuance warrants of arrest, extradition, etc to find the accused persons investigate the allegations and ensure that the law takes its course in this matter.” The statement read.
He added that, “Citizens are urged to remain calm, political parties are advised to refrain from desperate attempts to score nonexistent political scores, the media is encouraged to prioritise the issues of concern to the customers and interrogate those matters and avoid the pollution that appears to be characterising the discourse.”
