Stop the Bank of Ghana (BoG) and other state agencies from tarnishing the image of Menzgold, musician Akoo Nana has appealed to President Nana Akufo-Addo.
In a video posted on social media platform Instagram, the Kasoa-based artiste said: "Anything Ghanaian, we don’t want to support it. Bank of Ghana, what is your problem? You said Menzgold has no license, meanwhile they do. Why are we like that?” he queried.
And further asked the president to “step into this thing because you gave us your word that you’ll make Ghana attractive to investors but look at what is happening. Please stop these people… If they don’t stop this, we won’t vote for NPP in 2020. You know the work we did for NPP to come to power.”
The musician's comments follow ongoing disagreements between Menzgold and the Bank of Ghana over its operations.
The BoG in a notice warned Ghanaians not to do business with the gold dealing company because it has no license.
And the Precious Minerals Marketing Company (PMMC) has also said it has revoked the license of Menzgold, after the company said it is not under the regulations of the BoG but the PMMC.
