The Coalition of aggrieved customers of the collapsed Fund Management Companies in Ghana has described their condition as worse compared to Covid-19.
The Secretary of the group, Joseph Aryeetey at a press briefing on Sunday accused the government of being insensitive to their plight. He said the government has failed in addressing the problem it created as a result of the financial sector clean-up
“This government has proven to be the most insensitive in the history of this country. This is evident in the way they have treated our issue. For a problem that you created by yourself under the guise of financial sector cleanup, we expected to be treated well. Even though our predicament is worse than COVID-19, the government appears to show more attention to companies that have been affected by the COVID than paying us”
However, the group cautions the government to be mindful of the consequences of its failure to address their grievances on the upcoming General Election.
“If the energy crisis and the nurses’ allowances scrapped off by the Mahama government could cause his defeat then, President Akufo-Addo should also know that history can repeat itself. We encourage our members to vote against Akufo-Addo if he refuses to pay us before the elections.”
