Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that he never promised to pay the locked up debt of Mezgold customers.
The Presidential Candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) made it clear that it will be premature to promise to pay them back since he does not know how much is owed.
“I have never said I’ll pay Menzgold customers,” he said.
John Mahama explained in an interview on Starr FM, Tuesday, November 3 that his government would investigate the extent of the debt and take remedial actions to cushion customers.
“Menzgold is a different kettle of fish because we don’t know the extent of what the indebtedness is. I’ve not seen any document that shows that this is how much it is. So unless you investigate and find out.
“It looks like this government has been reluctant to investigate it or even go after those who took people’s money in the fraudulent manner. And so I said when we come we’ll pursue and find out what the true facts are and we’ll take remedial actions to alleviate the suffering of the customers,” he said.
He also said his government will find out assets available in Menzgold that can be sold to payback some of the monies they owe.
“What are the assets of the company? Are there any hidden assets that you can lay hold of and dispose of and pay back some of the monies that are owed. And the point is, why should people who have perpetrated something like this just walk away without any inhibitions?” he said.
