Traders with locked-up funds will resume picketing the Finance Ministry on Wednesday, June 5, and proceed each Wednesday till their issues are addressed. This choice follows the failure of Deputy Minister Dr. Stephen Amoah to honour his promise to fulfill with the aggrieved traders.

The Locked-up Funding Holders Discussion board first picketed the Ministry of Finance on Wednesday, Could 15, 2024, demanding that the Finance Minister make monetary provisions for the cost of depositors’ funds with bancrupt finance homes and financial savings & loans corporations, enabling the Financial institution of Ghana to revoke their licenses and pay depositors.

This second promise led the protesters to droop the picketing on Could 22 and Could 29, 2024, to permit for the promised assembly.

Nevertheless, in a latest assertion, Dr. Anane-Antwi expressed disappointment, saying, “Sadly, the Ministry of Finance has not referred to as us for the assembly the Deputy Minister promised to have with us.” He added, “We are going to resume picketing on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, and proceed each Wednesday till we get a decision to the cost of our locked-up funds.”
