The Coalition of Aggrieved Menzgold Customers has issued an ultimatum to government to repay them whatever they were owed by the defunct gold dealership firm, or they will vote against the NPP in the December 7 elections.

The group is demanding that the government pays them by end of October or risk jeopardizing its electoral fortunes in the December polls.

To this end, the Coalition has released a statement urging all affected customers, their relatives and other persons affected, in one way or the other, by the closure of Menzgold to register for the new voter ID card.

The Coalition cautioned the affected persons to consider registering as ‘an important national exercise’ to ensure that they are not left out in choosing the next government.

“This is a very urgent call on all our members so that we can be part of the decision taking process to determine which group of people will run the affairs of this nation in view of what has happened to our locked up investments in Menzgold and other financial institutions” the statement emphasized.

Meanwhile, in an interview with ABC News Wednesday, Public Relations Officer of the Group, Fred Forson stated that they have received assurances from the opposition National Democratic Congress and its flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, that their monies will be paid if the NDC wins the December polls.

Fred Forson explained that the priority of the members of the Coalition is to retrieve their funds hence should government fail to heed to their October ending deadline, they will be left with no choice than to solidly support for John Mahama to secure a comeback victory in December 2020.

“We have heard the NDC’s promise to pay our moneys if they come to power in 2021 and we are most grateful to them. So if by October of this year, customers have not received their locked-up funds, we shall go with them or any other party who will give us definitive promise

He said the customers have no reason to doubt John Mahama because when NDC was in power, the investments of Menzgold customers remained intact until the NPP government came to power.

“It is our considered opinion that our current predicament of having our funds locked up is because of insensitive leadership. If by October this year the government has not finished paying our locked up investment then we shall advise ourselves on who to vote for,” Fred Forson said.

“That is what the customers are saying and it is important to make the point that currently, it is this government which is in power and has control over the national purse,” he added.
