Ghana FA Communications Director, Henry Asante Twum, has replied comments from Phar Rangers bankroller Nana Yaw Amponsah.
Nana Yaw Amponsah in a discourse held by Accra-based media outlet Happy FM in conjunction with GTV Sports Plus reckoned the GFA should eschew living luxuriously at the expense of their ailing clubs.
But in response to the above-mentioned comments from last year’s GFA presidential aspirant, Henry Asante Twum told Kumasi-based Fox FM:
“The current administration of the Ghana Football Association has not bought any car. The past administration ordered for two land cruisers in 2017 from abroad. When the cars arrived, the administration was not in office because of the Anas Number 12 Expose. The cars got stuck at the port for a very long time,”
He continued: “The cars are not for the current GFA administration. They are not for Kurt Okraku, Prosper Harrison Addo, Henry Asante, Randy Abbey or Mark Addo. They are for the GFA. Those cars were not bought by the current football administration,”
“After our takeover from the Normalisation Committee (NC), the taxes on the cars were close to ¢700,000 because it had stayed at the port for over a year. So the GFA was supposed to pay penalties for it. At a point, if we had not reacted quickly on it, the cars would have been auctioned. We tried our possible best to make contacts and did all we could to clear the cars. It is very unfortunate for some people to be saying our administration have been purchasing cars. The current GFA haven’t bought any car,” he ended.
