The Coalition of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold said it never asked the government to pay them their locked up investments with Menzgold.
Recently amid the Menzgold brouhaha, the Minister for Information; Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a statement issued on behalf of the government said although the government shall employ the powers of the State to ensure the law takes its course, it will not use taxpayers’ monies to refund the aggrieved customers.
But the Coalition of Aggrieved Menzgold Customers in a statement has described the posture of government as unfortunate, reiterating that the statement from government is not a solution to their predicament.
Spokesperson for the group; Amankwah Baffuor in a statement denied that they had wanted government to pay their locked up investment.
“The statement does not address our concern, it is very unfortunate. We’ve never said on any platform that the government should use tax payers’ money to bail us out"; he said.
"Issuing a warrant to get Nana Appiah Mensah and anyone involved arrested is most important because they have the intelligence and all the tools to know where they are hiding"; he added.
The government has advised customers of Menzgold to take legal action if they wish to push for the payment of their investment from the company.
After demonstrations in Accra and Kumasi, an arrest warrant was issued earlier this week for Menzgold’s CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah who is believed to be hiding in Nigeria, South Africa or Britain.
He is facing charges of defrauding by false pretense as well as two other individuals associated with the company; Benedicta Appiah and Rose Tetteh.
