Other sponsors are Japan Motors (GH¢5,000) plus a motor bike to assist in the operations of GOC; Goil Ghana Limited (GH¢5,000) with the State Insurance Company (SIC) presenting (GH¢ 7,000). Auto Plaza Company were also not left out of the picture, dishing out a widow’s mite of GH¢1,000 and an undisclosed number of gifts to be delivered to the GOC in due course. In an interview with the Times Sports in Accra yesterday, first vice president of the GOC, Mr Frank Appiah, said Ghana was ‘fully loaded for bear’ to grab some medals from the games, calling on other corporate bodies to join the crusade. He disclosed Puma’s readiness to kit the entire contingent including Ghana’s Paralympic team during their ceremonial periods, training and competition. Mr Appiah expressed GOC’s profound gratitude to all who have donated so far towards the quadrennial games.
