Aggrieved customers of the defunct Gold Coast Fund Management say they will extended their picketing at the Finance Ministry indefinitely if government fails to heed to their calls.
According to the aggrieved customers, they intended to protest at the Ministry for two days with the hope that government will meet them at a round table to discuss issues affecting them.
They however noted that, they have every reason to believe that, government has no intentions to resolve their problem since no government officials have met them two days after protesting at the Finance Ministry.
Convener for the group, Charles Nyame, in an interview with Captain Koda on the Kumasi based OTEC 102.9 FM’s morning show Nyansapo on Wednesday October 11, 2023, said government officials have been insensitive to their plight
He added that, the group will continue to protest at the Finance Ministry until government releases their locked up funds to pay them.
“We wrote to police about our protest and gave them 48 hours hoping that we would have achieved some results after that, but looking at how things are going, we will have to stay here for a longer time, hence we are writing again to the police to extend the picketing indefinitely “.
He lamented that over 800 of their members have died in the last five years due to the government’s refusal to pay their investments.
The aggrieved customers on Tuesday October 10, 2023 picketed at the premises of the Ministry to demand the disbursement of their locked-up funds.
The group says that GH¢8.6 billion approved by Parliament to settle their members is yet to get to its members.
The Securities and Exchange Commission revoked the company’s operating license in 2019 as part of the government’s financial sector clean-up.
