The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has launched a scathing attack on President Akufo-Addo over the way the Menzgold issue has been handed.
At its second in series of the ‘Moment of Truth’, Director of Communications Sammy Gyamfi said, the president indirectly endorsed, advertised and gave credibility to the activities of Menzgold and its Chief Executive Officer, Nana Appian Mensah aka NAM 1 by engaging him at the seat of government.
Assigning reasons why the party believes the president was complicit in the matter, he said President Akufo-Addo has been part of the problem and must be part of the solutions.
He is also alleging that Menzgold has paid some government officials and facilitated his escape through the security agencies.
He made clans that Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, sponsored the campaign of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party ahead of the 2016 general elections.
“NAM 1 sponsored NPP and the Akufo-Addo’s campaign with gargantuan amount of money…NAM 1’s amorous relationship is the only explanation why state security aided him to escape,” Gyamfi said during the party’s press conference titled Moment of Truth held Wednesday.
Mr. Gyamfi addressing the press said the awards given the embattled CEO of Menzgold by various award ceremonies organized by the Trades ministry gave prominence to the activities of NAM 1.
According to him, Akufo-Addo and his appointees have aided in creating the mess and as such should be part in fixing the challenge by paying customers of Menzgold their locked up investments.
