Customers of the defunct Gold Coast Fund Management Company have begun their second day of protest outside the Ministry of Finance, demanding the release of their locked-up funds.
The group spent the night camped outside the ministry to send a strong message to the government, urging them to disburse the approved GH¢8.6 billion allocated by Parliament.
Today, October 11, these customers are unwavering in their commitment, vowing not to vacate the ministry’s entrance until they receive a positive response from the government.
The group is currently picketing at the entrance of the Finance Ministry.
The convener of the group, Charles Nyame, in an interview with Citi News, said, “I said we will sleep here with the workers. No policeman can stop us, not even the Inspector General of Police [George Akuffo Dampare] unless they shoot us with their bullets. Everybody in this building will sleep with us today. They will not go to their homes. They will feel what it looks like. That’s our message for them today. Ofori-Atta is not above the law. Parliament cannot allocate our money, and he has pocketed it, and no one is questioning him.”
