'Inexperienced' Sammy Gyamfi trying hard to politicise the Menzgold Saga - Razak Opoku

Founder and President of Concerned Voters Movement (CVM), Razak Kojo Opoku has described the NDC's National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi as an inexperienced who doesn't have full knowledge about capital market and investment but trying hard to politicise the Menzgold Saga.

Addressing a news conference in Accra on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, Sammy Gyamfi accused President Akufo-Addo and his government of endorsing the operation of Menzgold.

Lawyer Gyamfi said Ghanaians who would have otherwise not invested in the company felt the business was genuine because they saw photographs of the President and the firm’s CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah, circulating on social media and other news media platforms.

“The Menzgold problem is largely the creation of Nana Akufo-Addo government. This is because the many overt acts of endorsement and advertisement of Menzgold and its CEO Nana Appiah Mensah, also known as NAM1 by the president and his appointees are inextricably linked to the present predicament of Menzgold customers.”

Earlier on, the Director of Communication at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin, has said that President Nana Akufo-Addo has never had a one-on-one meeting with NAM1.

Mr Arhin has also refuted claims that Mr Akufo-Addo tweeted his admiration of NAM1’s success story after they shook hands at the Jubilee House in April 2018 last year when the now-fugitive businessman accompanied the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) at the time, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, to the presidency.

“I want to put it on record that never has the president’s Twitter handle been used to do that. That supposed tweet is a fake,” Mr Arhin noted on Thursday, 10 January 2019.

He was emphatic that: “President Akufo-Addo never had a one-on-one meeting with NAM1 on the 25th of April 2018”.

But in a statement issued by the CVM boss and copied to the media indicated "President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party have absolutely nothing to do with Nana Appiah Mensah. For avoidance of doubt NPP's Government was never responsible for granting a license to NAM 1 to start the operations of Menzgold in Ghana".



The statement added "The inexperienced National Communication Officer of the NDC is trying very hard without the full knowledge and understanding of capital markets, money markets and investment to politicize the Menzgold Saga".

The statement opined "I doubt if the Ghanaian voters will buy into such a silly assumption by the National Communication Officer of the NDC".

The statement blamed "If John Mahama and NDC's Government were serious about good governance and financial stability of the State, NAM 1 would not have gotten the opportunity to start the business in the first place".

Below is the full statement

SCARCITY OF HUMAN RESOURCE HAS GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO A 'FOOL' TO BE ELECTED AS NATIONAL COMMUNICATION OFFICER OF NDC

The National Democratic Congress is currently suffering from a lack of quality human resource to steer the affairs of the party.

The noise of Okudzeto Ablakwa, Felix Ofosu Kwakye, Fiifi Kwetey, Omane Boamah and the rest could not save the NDC in 2016 how much more a political neophyte as the National Communication Officer for the NDC.

The voice of NDC's National Communication Officer aka the Noisemaker was in existence during the 2016 General Election roaming from one media house to the other but yet still NDC and John Mahama had 44.4%.



The inexperienced National Communication Officer of the NDC is trying very hard without the full knowledge and understanding of capital markets, money markets and investment to politicize the Menzgold Saga.

I doubt if the Ghanaian voters will buy into such a silly assumption by the National Communication Officer of the NDC.

President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party have absolutely nothing to do with Nana Appiah Mensah. For avoidance of doubt NPP's Government was never responsible for granting a license to NAM 1 to start the operations of Menzgold in Ghana.

The firmness and seriousness of President Akufo-Addo's Government has rather discontinued the alleged Ponzi scheme by NAM1 licensed by John Mahama's Government.

If John Mahama and NDC's Government were serious about good governance and financial stability of the State, NAM 1 would not have gotten the opportunity to start the business in the first place.

All Ponzi schemes in Ghana starts under the NDC Government simply because members of the NDC Government are totally ignorant about Capital Markets, Money Markets and Financial Markets in general.

The National Communication Officer of NDC is just shouting, hallucinating and politically masturbating about the issues of Menzgold Monster created by John Mahama's Government.



It's sad to note that, the National Communications Officer of the NDC could not propose a single sensible solution to the issues of Menzgold. It was all about shouting, shouting, shouting, absolutely no sense.

For Ghanaians to take NDC serious as a credible alternative Political Party, they have to start giving the opportunity and platform to sensible Party Leaders to address issues affecting the well-being of the Nation.

Menzgold's Saga can never win Power for the NDC in 2020.

President Akufo-Addo's Government is committed under the laws of Ghana together with due diligence to address the concerns of Menzgold's customers.

Signed!

Razak Kojo Opoku

CVM Founder and President
