Kwasi Nyantakyi has dismissed reports the Ghana FA has decided to renew the contract of Globacom to sponsor the Premier League.
News of Gloâ€™s sponsorship renewal emerged following the resignation of Dr. K.K Sarpong as chairman of the Ghana FAâ€™s Marketing and Sponsorship Committee.
Rumours were rife that Dr Sarpong resigned his post due to the Ghana FA bossâ€™ interference in his work which included a decision to renew the telecommunication firmâ€™s contract for a lesser fee.
But Nyantakyi has quashed these conspiracy saying it was not stated in the Asante Kotoko chairmanâ€™s resignation letter.
â€œI am surprised that other motives than what he (Sarpong) told us are imputed to his resignation,â€ he said.
â€œIn his letter, he told us due to time constraints he was unable to combine the work with other commitments that he had.
â€œHowever, he was available to continue to offer his advice to the GFA and we accepted it in good faith.
â€œSo for somebody to say I was interfering, I donâ€™t interfere. Not even with Dr Sarpong but any other department here, you can ask anybody, I donâ€™t interfere.â€
Nyantakyi also took time to explain how decisions of such nature are taking by the football association.
â€œIt is factually incorrect for anybody to say that the Glo contract has been extended. First of all the contract has not expired yet, the contract will expire at the end of the season in 2013,â€ he added.
â€œSecondly there has never been any meeting between the GFA and Glo to even discuss a renewal, there may be interests but there has not been a discussion let alone having a decision.
â€œThe third point is that a lot of people think the President of the GFA is Mr Rambo who has so much powers.
â€œExecutive authority is vested in the Executive Committee and not the President, it is the other way round in our national constitution.
â€œSo it is the Executive Committee who has the mandate to even extend the contract, if I did that unilaterally, I will be impeachedÂ and removed.
â€œI have never done that and the Executive Committee has not done that so I donâ€™t know where from this concorted, fabricated and untruth story coming from.â€
