The Coalition of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold has called on their members to go out to register in the ongoing voters' registration exercise.
According to them, the government has played a key role in enhancing their challenges and, as such, it is important to vote them out of power on 7 December.
The coalition reminded its members that the power to change the government rests with them and it is therefore important that they exercise their rights to vote.

At a press conference held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday, 7 July, the coalition’s members chanted “our blood, our money.”
Per a report by classfmonline.com, the coalition’s spokesperson, Amankwah Baffour, noted that their members need to be part of the people who can determine who rules the nation.
Baffour also called on the members to ensure adherence to all COVID-19 safety protocols as they participate in the 2020 polls.
He further indicated that their current status will determine their votes on election day as the government has made it clear it is not interested in prosecuting Nana Appiah Mensah, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Menzgold Ghana Limited.
The reason, he explained, was because the government dropped 61 charges against the businessman, proving they have no interest in seeking justice.
