On President Akufo-Addo, it is believed that Nyantakyi forced him to meet Nana Appiah Mensah even though National Security had a reservation about the meeting. After announcing plans to sponsor the Ghana Premier League, which had been without a headline sponsor, Nana Appiah Mensah was led by Kwesi Nyantakyi to pay a courtesy call on the President.
We confirmed from trusted sources that as part of the agreement for Nana Appiah Mensah to sponsor the league, Kwasi Nyantakyi was to facilitate a meeting between NAM 1 and the President which happened.
The meeting with the President Akufo-Addo came weeks after NAM 1 led a delegation of executives and staff of Zylofon Media and MenzGold to “honour an invitation by Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, to grace the Akwasidae at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi”, where the team landed with Nana Appiah Mensah’s alleged private jet.
After this, Nana Appiah Mensah received the National Chief Imam Sheikh Osumanu Nuhu Sharubutu in his NAM Mission Headquarters where it was reported that Nana Appiah Mensah donated Ghc 1 Million as seed money for the setting up of the ‘Sheikh Nuhu Osmanu Sharubutu Educational Fund’ to support the education of bright but needy Muslims in Ghana, as we reported at the time.
Some Menzgold customers who have money locked in Menzgold have began launching attacks on the handlers of Akufo-Addo, Otumfuo and the National Chief Imam over this move, revealing that they began to trust the Menzgold brand due to these personalities’ association with Nana Appiah Mensah and Menzgold.
So far, following the bust of Menzgold, Ghanaians and some customers of Menzgold have been asking for the money gifted to the Chief Imam to be returned as it is believed to be part of the Menzgold looted cash by Nana Appiah Mensah.
“The owner of Menzgold also had the privilege of meeting the leader of the Muslim faith in Ghana, the Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu. A Menzgold client who is Muslim confessed to me that after seeing the photo of his leader with NAM1, that gave him the confidence to invest in the business. According to him, he planned to invest GHS 600,000 but increased it to GHS 1,000,000. That is power and influence a photo with the Chief Imam had.” a customer’s relative had said.
