Popular artist Manager, Lawrence Nana Asaimah Hanson, has been arrested by police over making some comments over Menzgold Cash. On Monday, January 11, it rumored that he has been picked up by the National Intelligence Bureau.
It can be recalled that he made some comments about the locked funds of the Menzgold customers on the UTV’s United Showbiz. He went on to say “We’ll get our monies back else Nana Addo will run; he won’t finish his 4 years. I’m telling you. He won’t finish his 4 years.”
The comment he made spread widely on social media with many indicating that he was threatening the President of Ghana.
On Monday morning, January 11, he also made an appearance on the ‘Best Entertainment Show’ on Okay FM by reacting on the comments he made. He said that the comments he made were not threats to the President.
According to him,
“We were talking about the Menzgold issue last Saturday on UTV and my thing about Menzgold is not a hidden agenda. I was a customer of Menzgold which I have a lot of money there. I’m part of over 800, 000 people who got their cash locked up there so I’m aggrieved and anytime the issue comes up, I speak with passion and highly emotional. I can’t actually hide it until the right thing is done.
“So the issue came up for discussion which I indicated the money will come else the President will run. I meant the pressure we will give him would surely amount to him giving directive for our monies to be paid. We can even decide to march to the Jubilee House in a very peaceful protests or we won’t stop talking – that was the run I meant and not the interpretation people are giving all over.”
“I can never and ever threaten the President. First of all, it is not in my power to do that. I don’t have any personal issues with the President and anytime I refer to him, I refer to his office. There has been a few times I have applauded him on developments under his tenure, people seemed not to value that but rather this. I recommended him for the Year Of Return agenda but this Menzgold thing has to be worked on.”
