Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini has said the Akufo Addo led government have showed Ghanaians how insensitive and wicked they are with their sudden u-turn in paying depositors of collapsed financial institutions.
This comes after government released ¢3.5 billion to settle all outstanding claims of depositors of defunct financial institutions including savings and loans firms.
According to Inusah Fuseini, government had insisted that they did not have cash to pay depositors therefore they would pay them through a zero-interest bond over a 5-year-period, however, after seeing the NDC manifesto they suddenly have cash to pay depositors.
“The NDC argued that this was not fair and yet, the government maintained its position and so, the NDC promised to pay the depositors their monies in full without delay. But suddenly, the government says it will pay the customers in full. This was captured in our manifesto, the NPP did not capture this in their manifesto. This shows some level of insensitivity and wickedness. It had to take the NDC for the government to pay the depositors,” he said.
