Some customers of  embattled  microfinance company, DKM Microfinance are threatening to  sue General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nkatia over  his allegations that their attempted demonstration in Sunyani was instigated by the opposition New Patriotic Party.

Some agitated customers of DKM Microfiance  planned to stage yet another demonstration against the Bank of Ghana and government at the manifesto launch of the NDC held in Sunyani.

This was  to demand the release of their deposits running into several millions of Ghana Cedis.

But an injunction from the High Court of Justice, Sunyani ordered the customers to refrain from any protest on the day of the launch. Mr. Nketia has subsequently accused the NPP of using the situation as a campaign message ahead of this year’s elections.

 Asiedu Nketia said government cannot be blamed for an investment decision that has gone bad. Speaking to Citi News, Spokesperson for the customers, Maxwell Mahama however indicated that they will resort to the courts if Asiedu Nketia fails to apologise for his comments. “That is an unfortunate remark from Asiedu Nketia.

 Those who don’t have their monies with these investment companies are the ones making these remarks. “It is not true that we are allowing ourselves to be wooed by politicians. That is why I am saying that Asiedu Nketia should come and apologise and retract or face us in the law courts for making these unwarranted and unfounded allegations.”  

Over 63,000 customers of DKM Microfinance are yet to retrieve their investments after the Bank of Ghana suspended the company’s operations for not abiding by regulations in the industry.
