Former president, and flagbearer of the NDC, John Mahama, has denied every promising to pay Menzgold customers.
He said he never made such a promise, explaining that he does not even know how much exactly is owed to the customers.
Mahama said he rather promised to have the matter investigated and proving remedial measures in place to support the customers.
He made this statement in an earlier interview with Starr FM, according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com.
According to him, it will definitely be premature for him to make such a hefty promise when it has not been established yet how much is involved in the debt.
"I have never said I will pay Menzgold customers when I win power,” Mahama said with firmness.
“I have not seen any document to know the level of indebtedness so I cannot make such a promise,” he added.
He stressed that his government would ensure that the matter is well investigated and the appropriate measures taken.
He also said his main goal is to provide immediate help for the customers.
Mahama accused President Akufo-Addo of shielding the CEO Menzgold, something he said will not happen under his government.
Telling how he would deal with the situation, Mahama said he will find out what assets of the company are there in order to sell them and use the money to pay the customers.
Meanwhile, Mahama has waded into the issue of some celebrities endorsing President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He touched on the case of Sarkodie and Samini, saying that even though they have publicly declared their support for the NPP, he still likes them.
