Some customers of Menzgold Ghana limited at Kasoa in the Central region have expressed dissatisfaction at the way the government is handling issues concerning the gold trading company. They have therefore threatened to embark on a naked demonstration should the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), fail to allow the company resume operations.
The customers who were mostly market women threatened to storm the Jubilee House naked in protest against the directive issued by SEC to Menzgold forcing them to stop operations.
The aggrieved women are questioning if the president wants them to engage in prostitution in order for them to survive. A women quizzed, ‘’I want to ask government if they want us to go out there and prostitute our bodies? That is what I want to ask President Akufo-Addo.
They further expressed disappointment in the president for making life very difficult for them in spite of believing in him and voting for him. ‘We voted for him to assume the role as president but he has failed to give the youth jobs to do. God has brought in someone who has created jobs for us to do and government wants to close down the company we are ready to storm the Jubilee House naked.’’
What does he [President] wants us to do if the company is shut down? Another aggrieved customer of Menzgold threatened, ‘we are storming the Jubilee House naked. We voted for Nana Addo because we had hope in him.’
The customers threatened to vote against his administration in 2020 should the challenges and issues of Menzgold be treated in a suspicious manner.
Others wondered why Menzgold is being treated ‘’unfairly’’ despite opening branches in other countries.
Meanwhile, another group calling itself Coalition of Concerned Youth have also called on the president to investigate his Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta because they suspect he is in engaging suspicious dealings at the disadvantage of financial institutions in Ghana.
