Head of Marketing at StarTimes Ghana Limited, Ms Akorfa Djakui has assured that her outfit is still committed to partnering the Ghana Premier League despite the bribery scandal that has shaken up the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The government on Thursday took steps to dissolve the GFA, 24 hours after the public viewing of an undercover investigative documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas dubbed ‘Number 12’ on Thursday, June 7 in Accra.
But Ms Akorfa insists her organisation is not discouraged in its quest to support the Ghana Premier League.
“We are the official broadcast partners of the GFA and so we do not think we should be affected in anyway. Indeed we had a partnership with the GFA, we had a contract which I’m sure is available, the probing might go as far as checking what we signed with them and so on,” Ms Djankui noted.
“We believe that if the Ghana Football is going to be overhauled, then we need to position ourselves to partner whoever would be in charge if the FA would come back. If some other bodies would be put in place to regulate football in Ghana we are ever ready to support Football in Ghana,” he added.
StarTimes are a major investor in the local game having signed a ten year broadcasting contract with the GFA in 2016 worth over $17 million.
