According to him, he won't sit and watch Asiedu Nketia to blame President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over the collapse of the gold trading firm.

His warning comes after Asiedu Nketia blamed Nana Addo for the crisis.

He [Asiedu Nketia] claims the President has an acquaintance with the CEO of Menzgold.

"We have records to show that President Akufo-Addo knows NAM 1 and has been dealing with him and Kwasi Nyantakyi. He cannot dissociate himself from these two people. I have records of how President Akufo-Addo was using Kwasi Nyantakyi for his dealings", Asiedu Nketia said.

Responding to the brouhaha on Adom TV, Kennedy Agyapong said "I won’t allow Asiedu Nketia and his cohorts in the NDC to blame Akufo-Addo for their greed in investing money with Menzgold. If you invested money and your monies have been locked, why should you blame Akufo Addo."

He stated: "It is important that we treat the matter holistically and devoid of politics, then we would know how to retrieve the locked monies."

He also revealed that some MPs who he refused to mention names sold their properties and invested in the gold firm and he believes that has angered some members of the opposition to make such claims.

"How can MPs sell properties including houses to invest in Menzgold and now accuse Akufo-Addo…were they accusing Akufo-Addo when they were taking their fat interests," he added.
