Customers of defunct Gold Coast Fund Management are calling on the government to as a matter of urgency release money locked up at the Fund to help reduce the financial hardships they are experiencing, particularly the widows among them.

According to them due to the locked up money, some of the customers have lost their lives while others have been hospitalized, hence the need for government to release the locked up money as soon as practicable.

One of the customers Kwame Appiah reiterated the point said in an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana after he donated some items to widows in the Abesim community. About 250 widows benefited from the donation.

The items were bags of rice and provisions valued at about GH¢8,000.

A Pastor at the Light House Chapel Sunyani Central, Maame Esi Barnsley, urged the widows to be hopeful since God has not forgotten them.

Madam Barnsley also asked the widows to be prayerful as it helps connect them to God. She also urged individuals to support widows.

Kwame Appiah who has been donating to the widows for 10 years said mobilizing funds for this year’s edition has been challenging due to the locked-up funds at the Gold Coast Fund securities.

He, therefore, called on the government to as a matter of urgency release the money to customers.
