Back in 2019, the Ghana National Gas Company signed a deal worth GHC50,000 to sponsor the Greater Accra Handball League but with the league and all competitive sports in the country suspended, Talks Africa got in contact with the General Secretary of the Greater Accra Handball Association (GAHA), Eric Sena Adjeyi, to find out the current state of the deal.
“We have been speaking to our two major sponsors Ghana Gas and Binatone and for now we haven’t spoken about the game (league) yet because we don’t have any date, we are not sure of what exactly we will be doing this year but their doors are open, we can walk in at the right time and have a discussion with them on what they can support us with” Eric revealed
“Ghana Gas was fairly satisfied with what they witnessed last year so it should be a plus for us this year going to them and asking them to support us again” He concluded. After seeking for sponsorship over 3 years President of the GAHA, Paul Kofi Yesu Dadzie, couldn’t hide his joy after receiving a cheque of GHC50,000 from the Ghana National Gas Company on 2nd October 2019 as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
“Am I dreaming or is the whole thing going on! It has not been easy for us as an association, because we don’t see why an association like Greater Accra Handball Association doing all it takes in handball but nobody is ready to help us from that angle.”
“It was a sign of relief to us when I got a call that we should see you for our cheque. So this afternoon we are here basically to express our appreciation to you and also to take charge of whatever you have for my association.” Kofi Yesu said when receiving the cheque.
