Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been congratulated by the Coalition of Angry Menzgold Customers on his victory as the ruling New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate.
The Menzgold customers, who are still demanding the payment of their frozen investments, have stated in a statement signed by coalition executives and convener Fred Forson that they anticipate the election of Bawumia as the NPP flagbearer will benefit the majority of Ghanaians.
A portion of the statement stated, “As CACM, we anticipate that the next election will bring forth ideas and messaging that will provide for the welfare of all Ghanaians regardless of socio-political background and that this democracy will fulfill the dreams of our forebears.”
Meanwhile, Nana Appiah Mensah, also referred to as NAM1, the troubled CEO of Menzgold, is facing new charges from the Attorney General’s Office.
In addition to bringing the new accusations at an Accra High Court today, the state attorney withdrew all of the previous ones against him.
Yvonne Atakora, the director of prosecution, gave an explanation of how changes to some of the figures (amounts involved) in the case required the filing of additional charges.
