Government has failed to pay the Bondholders four principals which have matured within the period of February to May.
Leadership of the group was Friday morning meeting with officials of the Finance Ministry upon the invitation of the Deputy Finance Minister, Abena Osei Asare.Deputy Finance Minister pleads with Pensioner Bondholders to suspend picketing
Speaking to JoyNews ahead of the meeting, Convener, Dr.
Adu Anane Antwi said members of the Forum will insist additional interests are paid.
“We have said that this is an investment capital, the capital that people are investing.
If you keep holding it, the only thing you have to do is to pay interest for the days that you have held this funds.
So that is all.
This meeting is (about) what interest are you going to pay, then we can talk about when you’re going to pay.
If we deal with the interest payment, when you’re going to pay will not be too big an issue because as long as it is with you it keeps on running as if the bond has not matured…”DISCLAIMER: The Views, Comments, Opinions, Contributions and Statements made by Readers and Contributors on this platform do not necessarily represent the views or policy of Multimedia Group Limited.
