Managing Director of Nasona Oil, Alhaji Shaibu Abuba told allsports.com.gh a deal has been agreed with the Techiman-based club, but pen has not been put to paper yet.
Techiman City, were demoted to the third tier of Ghana football after they were found guilty of bribery and match-fixing during a Zone 1 match against Wa African United by the Ghana FA Ethics Committee.
But they were granted stay of execution to compete for the rest of the season pending the Club’s appeal of the decision.
And Managing Director of Nasona Oil says a deal with will be signed as soon as they are cleared to compete in the 2015/2016 season.
“We have agreed a deal with Techiman City but no document has been signed yet,” Managing Director of Nasona Oil, Alhaji Shaibu Abuba told allsports.com.gh
“The tone of our negotiations is deal depending in Techiman City success in their appeal of the GFA (Ethics Committee) ruling. Discussion is based on a club going to compete in the premier league. The tone of the deal will change if they are unsuccessful in their appeal.
“But I must add that the contract will still be signed even if they are not successful with their appeal, but it will be on a different condition. Playing in the premier league is different from the Division One.”
Alhaji Abuba Shaibu added he is looking forward to partnering Techiman City because he believes Nasona Oil brand will be marketed to Ghanaians through such an alliance.
“We are looking to grow our brand and for us, having our logo on Techiman City will be a plus to the company. The club will provide us the platform to be known across the country.”
The Ghana Premier league is scheduled for January 10, but legal issues involving some of the promoted is threatening to delay the start of the league on the said date.
But President of Techiman City Football Club Charles Kwadwo Ntim says a deal is signed and sealed to the tune of $350,000.
