- NDC general secretary Asiedu Nketia has claimed NAM1 is a card-bearing member of the ruling NPP member
- The NDC secretary disclosed that NAM1 was aiming to become an MP for the NPP
The general secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has stated that the CEO of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah aka NAM1 is a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to Asiedu Nketia, NAM1 was a card-bearing member of the NPP who was aiming to become a member of Parliament for the party at the Awutu Senya East.
In an interview with Accra-based Power FM, Asiedu Nketia said: “This Menzgold thing, do you know the man was eyeing to stand as parliamentary candidate at Kasoa on the ticket of the NPP? He is the son of the NPP Women Organiser. That is how come he established the NAM mission at the area and started doling out money.”
NAM1 has been in the news for the past six months since the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) closed down Menzgold.
The closure of Menzgold has got many customers' investments locked up with many blaming the government over the decision to close down the company.
Some of the customers have even stated that they were encouraged to save with Menzgold because of a photo NAM1 meeting President Nana Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House which made them believe he was credible.
Communicators of the government and the NPP have always maintained that it was a random photo and that NAM1 was just part of a Ghana Football Association entourage which called on the president.
But according to Asiedu Nketia, government's posturing that it did not know NAM1 was very surprising considering that his mother was an NPP women organiser and he was lacing his boots to contest NPP parliamentary primaries in the Awute Senya East constituencies.
“If the same NPP now come out to tell us they do not know NAM 1 who are they deceiving,” he asked.
Meanwhile, the police CID has disclosed that NAM1 has been granted bail but still undergoing trial in Dubai.
