Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of defunct gold dealership firm, Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah met with the press on Monday August 19 to brief, empower and inspire the customers, staff and entrepreneurs in general on the need to be united in fighting a common enemy.
“Our competitors are not in Ghana; they are far away in Silicon Valley, California. To you, I say, ants that unite can beat an elephant. Admittedly, we have made some pretty good losses”
We are happy about our loss having been a disruptive art and media business. We wear our loss as a badge of honor, depicting our grand ambition. By natural law, you have to go through a thunderstorm to see the rainbow. Our eyes are still set on the colourful rainbow. We shall succeed’’ he stated.
He also commended his staff who have stayed with him through what he calls ‘persecution’
“To the staff body of all our companies, I couldn’t have been more proud of you for standing resolute in the face of adversity. I encourage you to continue to stand strong as we navigate the path of soon meeting up to the demands of our cherished customers” he added.
“To our Menzgold customers, we note that you have experienced an increased level of anxiety and concern, but have been extremely understanding and patient with us through these trying times. We continue to recognize and respect your sacrifice, please remember that your patience and support is not an entitlement, but something we earned by the way we worked with you diligently over the past years. I can assure you that, it would pay off favourably soon” he added.
