Some customers of the Tamale branch of the investment company, Gold Coast Securities, are calling on the Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC, to help them retrieve their investments, which matured in the last quarter of 2018.

The entity, which is a subsidiary of Groupe Nduom, chaired by Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, was being investigated by the Economic and Organized Crimes Unit (EOCO) in December 2018.

It followed a petition from clients who were struggling to retrieve their investments.

But one of the aggrieved customers in Tamale who spoke to Citi News on condition of anonymity, said the situation is worrying, hence the their call for the Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC, to force the troubled company to provide them with a payment schedule.

“What we are asking from them is a payment schedule. It is problematic for them not to pay us since they promised us in October that we will get our money by the end of December.  We have waited for long but nothing has happened. Two weeks ago, we came here and they told us that they were going to give us certificates. I wonder which school we have attended that we need certificates.”

“We need our money, have our monies now turned into certificates? This is not what we need. All we need is our money. We hear they are going to pay us in March. But we don’t want that because we can’t wait till March, and have our stores still locked up. Although SEC has ordered them to pay us, they are not and SEC is also not saying anything, he added.

This response however did not go down well with the aggrieved customers.
