Businessman and Chief Executive Officer of gold dealership firm, Menzgold Ghana, Nana Appiah Mensah has apologized for his use of uncomplimentary language while refuting a claim by the Bank of Ghana against his company.

While admitting that his tweet response to the central bank last week was awkward, he says he is taking steps to settle the matter amicably and asks to be pardoned.

Last week the affable businessman had described a Bank of Ghana warning over Menzgold’s dealings as a joke, leading to hushed rejection of his language as inappropriate for business.

“Owing to the fallible nature of man, I sincerely apologise for my initial reaction to the Bank of Ghana press release. We’ve engaged and are cooperating with the Bank of Ghana and other state agencies to cordially resolve the matter in the interest of our beloved Republic of Ghana.”
