President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has finally spoken about the Menzgold saga in 2019 State of the Nation Address.
The president has advised Ghanaians to learn from what has happened as authorities are putting in place the needed measures.
“The MenzGold debacle is a tragic phenomenon that appears to have occurred in plain sight, and affected a lot of people, in spite of warnings from official institutions”.
“As the authorities try to unravel the intricacies of the MenzGold saga I admonish Ghanaians to learn the necessary lessons, even as State institutions work to bring a resolution and those who indulged in criminal activities, are brought to justice”.
“The existence of a body such as the newly-inaugurated Presidential Financial Stability Advisory Council would have forestalled the emergence of the MenzGold saga, and will make it difficult, in future, for any such scheme to get off the ground”, president Akufo-Addo said.
