Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama has promised to pay customers of the collapsed financial institutions who still have their funds locked up.
Mr Mahama said that all payments will be made during his first year in office if he is voted for as president of the country in December 2020.
While delivering his address during a ceremony to outdoor his running mate for the December polls, Mr Mahama further added that his government shall implement a plan to pay all customers who have been left aggrieved for over a year now.
“I pledge on behalf of the NDC that we shall within one year of being in office pay all funds that have been locked up with the collapsed financial institutions. Within our first year in office, we shall pay all the beneficiaries all funds locked up in the collapsed financial institutions and it’s a promise. We shall not put together any long term payment plan that will further worsen the living conditions of the victims,” he added.
He further stated that if the NDC is given the mandate to steer the affairs of the country, he will set up a financial service authority to prevent a repeat of what happened under the Akufo-Addo led administration.
