Some workers of the embattled gold dealership firm, Menzgold Ghana Limited, have pleaded with the government to stop pursuing Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM1) with Interpol.
According to them, government pursuing NAM1 is frustrating the young businessman’s quest to bring back to Ghana from Dubai, some $39 million he intends using to pay his clients whose funds have been locked up with the company since August 2018.
In a statement jointly signed by Mr Opoku Danso Derrick, Chairman; and Mr Collins Kwakye Ankomah, Spokesperson, the group said Mr Appiah Mensah cannot successfully retrieve the money from the Dubai-based Diamond Royale Company as ordered by an Emirati court, if the Interpol red alert issued by the government of Ghana on their CEO still holds.
“Unconfirmed sources of information we have garnered have revealed the government of Ghana’s intention to have him extradited without conducting critical follow-ups to facilitate payment of the said money.
“We, the loyal staff of Menzgold, humbly request the government of Ghana, under the leadership of His Excellency the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to, first of all, declare Nana Appiah Mensah Interpol-free to facilitate the retrieval or payment of the said money”, the group pleaded, adding: “Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM1) cannot come to Ghana without the said money to pay customers”.
The group said “when the said money is paid, we, as loyal staff, can effect prompt payment to customers even with or without Nana Appiah Mensah’s presence. We strongly rely on your kind cooperation”, the statement said.
