Some aggrieved Menzgold customers have promised to vote massively for former President John Mahama if he can reassure them he will settle all their locked up funds when he wins power.
Several thousands of Ghanaians have their investments locked up with the ‘ponzi scheme’ firm for over two years now.
But President Mahama has promised to within a year pay customers of all financial institutions who cannot access their locked up funds for some time now if he recapture power.
Some of the aggrieved customers have promised to reward him with their votes if he can fulfil his promises.
“The comment from the flagbearer JDM is very reassuring, but we want him to be more specific with Menzgold that when I come within one year, I will make sure that all Menzgold customers receive their investments”, one customer said on an Accra-based radio station monitored by MyNewsGh.com
He added “that is what we want to hear from him [Mahama] publicly so that the customers will not have any doubt in him. So, we can also go all out and sell his message to our people.”
Another customer said “the comment from, I think is feasible and he has been in government before so he knows the pros and cons and all that in government. For him to promise that I think is possible.”
“I think is possible. It tells me he is a thinking president because he thinks about other people. If you a leader, you hold the door for others to enter before you close”, added.
Some customers of the beleaguered gold dealership firm, Menzgold have died out of shock and pain since their monies got locked up.
Though they were warned by the Bank of Ghana not to invest their funds with Menzgold since it was unlicensed, they defied the warnings.
