Dr. Adu Anane Antwi, a former Director General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the current convenor of the Individual Pension Bondholders has called out to the government to honor his word and settle their matured coupons
He made this remark at a time the government has failed to pay Pensioners Bondholders their matured coupons despite the promise he made to them to make payments on the 21st of February, 2023.
According to him, most of these pensioners depend on the coupons for their medical and utility bills and the government’s failure to pay them might cause some pensioners to die.
Speaking in an interview on Joy News monitored by 1Family Radio, Dr. Antwi stated that the government should borrow money from the Treasury Bill and pay them.
‘’This is a matter of life and death and you can remember that the president said that the dead cannot be brought back but the economy can be revived. If the dead cannot be brought back to life, the president should pay us because we will die if we are not paid,’’ he said.
“We will die because we unable to get money for our medications and other bills, the president can’t bring us back so he should borrow money from the treasury bill and pay the pensioners so that they don’t die,’’ Dr. Anane added.
He hinted that they will not stop picketing at the Ministry of Finance until they have received their money.
