Alexander Afenyo-Markin, MP for Effutu Constituency

New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Effutu Constituency, Alexander Afenyo Markins, has informed the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah that the government has no role in the payments of debts he owes his customers.

NAM1, as he is popularly known, had sought the government’s intervention in retrieving his $39 million from Horizon Royal Diamond in Dubai.

The embattled CEO, in a news conference on Monday, pleaded with the government to help his firm settle debts owed his customers and help retrieve some $39 million debt owed him by a Dubai company, Royal Horizon.

Speaking in an interview on Adom TV‘s Badwam show, Hon Afenyo-Markins described the briefing as disappointing, saying there was the need for the Information Ministry not to take his statements for granted.

“I was happy NAM1 was bold to speak on the issue but he created an impression that the government is in the position to help him pay his customers but whether legally or diplomatically, the government has no role,” the MP noted.

“NAM1 must be able to use the legal machinery in Dubai to settle this issue,” he said

Hon Afenyo-Markins added, “His communication style was wrong because if he really wanted to solve the problem, he could have disclosed vital information on his assets, his amounts in the bank and how best he can sit with stakeholders to discuss payment plans and the plans to liquidate his assets.”
