President Nana Akufo-Addo has summoned an emergency cabinet meeting over the ongoing Menzgold dealership saga.
The meeting, Graphic Online gathers, is aimed at weighing the options available to government to get the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the embattled gold dealership firm, Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM 1, who is currently in the custody of the Emirati authorities back to Ghana.
Thousands of customers of the company have been calling for government’s intervention to retrieve their locked up investments with the company.
A delegation of government officials and Nana Appiah Mensah’s father was expected to travel to the Persian Gulf country to negotiate his release, however government sources say arrangements for the trip are yet to be consumated.
Graphic Online has also learnt authorities in Dubai are insisting on a
firm commitment on the part of Ghanaian security authorities to
investigate, and bring to book persons involved in the swindling of the
Dubai based company of a whopping $51 million, as well as their refund
of the money.
“Now they are holding him as a bargaining chip and the government itself to ransom, insisting that the security apparatus hasn’t showed much interest in looking for the swindlers. They want their money, that is all they are demanding,” the source said.
