Locked-up investment holders forum to resume picketing today

Members of the Locked-up Investment Holders’ Forum will today, Wednesday, June 5, resume picketing at the Finance Ministry following the ministry’s failure to engage with the group as promised.

The group had suspended an earlier protest following assurances from Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. Stephen Amoah, to address their grievances.

The members have been demanding that the Finance Ministry provide assurances to enable the Bank of Ghana to pay funds locked up in defunct finance firms.

According to Dr Adu Anane Antwi, the Convenor for the locked-up investment holders’ forum, they have been left with no choice but to resume picketing due to the lack of engagement.

“We will be resuming our picketing this Wednesday, June 5, 2024, as the meeting that was promised by the Deputy Minister for Finance, Dr. Stephen Amoah, with us after he returned from his trip on May 27, 2024, has still not come on.

“I sent the Deputy Minister a text message and a WhatsApp message last Thursday reminding him that we are still waiting for him to call us for the meeting.

“We still have not received any response whatsoever from the Ministry of Finance, and therefore…this coming Wednesday, June 5, we are resuming the picketing.”
