Accra - The fate of Menzgold customers seem to be hanging by a thin line as to whether they would be paid the deposits they lost.
Years back, Menzgold ran into some issues with the Securities and Exchange Commission which led to the former's activities being halted.
As a result, customers of the gold firm have had their monies locked up and have tried using various avenues to seek redress and have their funds returned to them.
Speaking to the media after a brief media engagement at the press center, an aggrieved customer of the defunct gold firm, called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to come to their aid.
