In a counter-press conference, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has replied the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the latter’s accusations on the ruling government in matters concerning gold dealership company Menzgold.
At a press conference on Wednesday, NDC’s Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi accused the government for contributing in a way to the loss of millions of Ghana Cedis belonging to the ordinary Ghanaian by Menzgold Ghana Limited.
Mr. Gyamfi alleged amongst other things that the government had a hand in smuggling Nana Appiah Mensah out of the country without the knowledge of our security agencies.
Addressing a counter press conference, Communications Director for the ruling NPP, Mr. Yaw Buaben Asamoah explained that Ghanaians are more discerning now than before to believe the “lies” and “propaganda” from the NDC.
“Twenty years ago, you could do this propaganda and get away with it,” he stated.
According to the leading executive member of the New Patriotic Party, Menzgold is part of the financial sector crunch the country was plunged into towards the end of the erstwhile NDC government.
Menzgold is one of the problems NDC has left us to clear,” Mr. Asamoa stressed.
“We have cleared a lot of their mess,” he indicated, alluding to the banking sector reforms.
He also revealed that a lot of wrongs were committed during the NDC government and Menzgold was one of them.
The legal practitioner assured that the Akufo-Addo government is committed to ensuring that the financial sector bounces back in good form to boost the economy.
