The National Communications Director of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has accused the government of being complicit in the ongoing Menzgold mess.
According to Gyamfi, the Akufo-Addo administration should be blamed for giving an image of legitimacy to embattled businessman, Nana Appiah Mensah and his gold dealership firm, Menzgold.
He added that Zylofon Cash’s sponsorship of the Ghana Premier League is one of the ways the NPP government painted the Menzgold CEO, popularly called NAM 1, as a credible fellow.
Primenewsghana.com reports that while addressing a press conference in Accra on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, Gyamfi said since NAM1 was allowed to sponsor the country’s top football league, it was assumed he is a credible businessman.

Gyamfi is quoted as saying: “The state looked on while NAM1 sponsored Ghana’s football league without any objections. When it comes to Ghana football, it is not a private affair."
According to him, the government cannot absolve itself from blame with the excuse that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is a private organization under the world football governing body, FIFA.
He wondered why the government did not object to his sponsoring the league when the Central Bank had made it clear that it was investigating Nana Appiah Mensah for operating without a license.
NAM 1 has since been declared wanted in the country and government delegation has flown to the United Arab Emirates where he is said to have been arrested for another deal gone bad.
