You can’t accept alcoholic sponsorship – FDA warns GFA

The Ghana Football Association is set unveil title sponsor for Ghana Premier League, Division One and Women’s League as hinted by the communications director Henry Asante Twum.

However, the Public Relations Officer of the Foods and Drugs Authority, Mrs Rhoda Appiah in an interview with Accra-based Angel FM, served a warning to the football governing body not to engage any alcoholic company as partners to sponsor any of their products.

“Our policy affect every industry and if GFA wants an alcoholic brand as a sponsor for their league they must first petition or give a proposal to the Ministry of Youth & Sports to push a review of the policy on Alcoholic drink advertising in the country for them.” – FDA P.R.O Mrs Rhoda Appiah told Angel 102.9 FM.

Mrs Appiah noted that her outfit is only carrying out its mandate as a regulator and can’t compromise on the policy unless the parliament of Ghana amends the Act to relieve entertainers and football clubs to engage alcoholic companies.

“Is affecting everybody even the entertainment people are having their fair share of it, so there’s no review in the policy football can’t receive alcoholic sponsorship.” – She added.
