Chairman for the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the Brazil 2014 World Cup Justice Senyo Dzamefe has instructed Mr. Ackah Anthony to produce an alleged text message from Mr. Yaw Ampofo Ankrah when next he appear before the Commission on Thursday.
Giving his testimony to the Commission on Monday, Mr. Ackah Anthony, President of the Sports Writers Association (SWAG) who happened to be the Chairman of the media committee claimed that they were not giving the chance to work professionally and cited how Gocell got the nod to established the Ghana to Brazil website at the cost of around GHC 27000.
“My lord during the presentations I was personally got wowed by the performance of Soft Cliq but I later received a text message from Mr. Yaw Ampofo Ankrah who was not present at the meeting telling me that his brother who happened to be the minister then favours Gocell to Soft Cliq.”
“My lord we were not just allowed to do our job. For instance, we had a Public Relations Officer in the media committee but when the time came for us to do our presentation, Mr. Yaw Ampofo Ankrah brought in a lady by name Dentaa to do it on our behalf and I recall this got some of us mad to the extent that Mr. Christopher Opoku who was our PRO threatened to resign.”
“My lord it will interest you to know that we as media committee members were not even invited to the launch of the website.”
“We had no hand whatsoever in who was supposed to go to Brazil although we were supposed to handle the media. For instance, it was at the last minute when I was told that 3 slots had been allocated to SWAG,” he added.
“Mr. Ackah thank you very much for honoring our invitation but before you appear before us on Thursday I’m giving you an assignment, please don’t forget to come with the text message which you claim the minister’s brother sent you concerning the choice of selection,” Justice Dzamefe told him.
