Though the central bank subsequently lifted the ban on the company’s operations, DKM was unable to pay its customers their locked up cash.

Nana Akufo-Addo prior to the 2016 elections said he will launch an investigation into circumstances surrounding the Diamond Microfinance Company (DKM) scandal if voted to office.

He said it was clear that the erstwhile administration have failed to adequately deal with the matter leading to thousands of Ghanaians losing their monies.

"I will investigate government’s inability to pay the monies owed as well as investigate the DKM scandal and to ensure that there would be total restoration to all affected in both scandals," he said.

Four months into the administration of Nana Addo, some aggrieved customers said the government must fulfill its promise or they'll invoke the wrath of the dreaded Antoa nyama (god) on the president.

In an interview on Accra-based Kasapa FM, one of the customers Eric Agyei said "Those of us who are not students of Nursing and Teacher training institutions what do we benefit from the restoration of the allowances. I’ll invoke the wrath of the dreaded Antoa nyama (god) on the president to deal with him ruthlessly. I’ll not allow the President to go free after failing to fulfill his promise made to us.

"You promised us to refund our monies if we vote you into power, you are in power now and you fail to say a word about your promise while you’re in our region, instead you’re talking about the restoration of Nurses and Teacher trainees allowances.

"Some of us are taking care of our children in such institutions, if the President pays back our monies, we’ll be able to cater for children who are students and they will not need allowances from the state. Just as it happened in Nkoranza where curses were rained which delayed the conduct of District Assembly elections, we’ll also hold the President by his own words and rain curses on him if he does not tell us anything convincing immediately."
