I’ll stop campaigning for Akufo-Addo if he pays Menzgold customers

The Bono Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe popularly know as Abronye DC has said that he will stop campaigning for the NPP if he pays the lock up funds of Menzgold customers.

Speaking in an interview on Hello FM, he said “for me if the NPP decides to pay customers of Menzgold, I will cease campaigning for the party”.

Former president John Mahama earlier this week questioned the presidents commitment in paying the MenzGold customers and also asked why Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM 1) is been shielded by President Akufo-Addo.

He argues that the decision to invest in the company was solely a private business decision between Menzgold and individuals describing calls for government’s intervention as misplaced.

According to him, the hundreds of aggrieved customers must redirect the anger to the defunct company as the government played no role in the whole transaction.

“It is unlawful for any government to pay customers of the gold firm because it is an individual company and therefore the state cannot release funds to rescue it not even on the day of elections”, he stated.
