Embattled Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, aka NAM1, has come under serious criticism over the past seven months.
The beleaguered businessman, who arrived from Dubai last week Thursday morning after going through a series of legal battles in Dubai. Upon his arrival, he was quickly apprehended by the police, and was hauled before the court which had issued a warrant for his arrest when he was out of the country.
Commenting on the issue, founder of the Potters Ville Church, Bishop Sam Ben Owusu described NAM 1’s returning to Ghana as needless if customers of Menzgold do not get back their money.
Bishop Ben Owusu told host DJ Nyaami in an interview on SVTV Africa that, even though he is happy for NAM 1’s return, he is more concern about the people who has lost their lives in the quest of getting their monies back from Menzgold.
“Well, I’m happy for his return but I’m more worried about the people who has lost their money and lives. People has lost their marriages; Pastors has lost their churches all because of this NAM 1. So me I think, NAM 1’s return is of no use, if people can’t get their monies back because people are suffering” he added.
He furthered that, government should ensure that, Menzgold pays its customers and also enforce the law.
“You see our institutions are weak, but we want to encourage our institutions to let the law deal with him. Let’s help the people get their money back”
Bishop Owusu urged Ghanaians to be more cautious when investing their money in some financial institutions. He also urged government to make sure the financial institutions in the country stand on their fit to boost Ghanaians confidence in local institutions.
