A man in the news, Nana Appiah Mensah has challenged government on what he feels is unfair whipping up of sentiments against him. Mensah, the Chief Executive Officer of gold dealership company Menzgold, says the government is tarnishing his image.
Mensah defended himself against the perceived attacks by insinuating that he was contributing his quota to the national economy.
In a Thursday morning post on Instagram, Mensah attempted to defend himself by Ghana and some other unmentioned African country.
His point was perhaps to illustrate how he felt betrayed by the authorities of the country whom he felt did not support businesses from its own people.
It was impossible for YEN.com.gh to embed the Instagram post but this what Mensah wrote:
“Somewhere in africa: A purported fraudulent business has been paying income and corporate taxes for gov’t, Salaries and SNNIT for staff, 5% & now 3% royalties on over $100 million dollars gold bars exports for the Minerals Commission, discharged contractual obligations fully to thousands of clients and have embarked on various Corporate Social responsibilities for 5 years successfully with no objection.#SeektheFacts.”
The businessman is in battle with the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) and the Bank of Ghana (BoG) in a bid to defend the legality of his business.
He added in his Instagram post: “At the end, what I would live with would be the shock at the silence of my friends and associates and not the temporary slay of my foes.#ValuesAdded #LifeLessons.
This obviously seemd like a man who feels lonely in his constant struggle to maintain his reputation.
Only last week, Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta expressed that the BNI is looking to arrest the Menzgold boss.
