George Mireku Duker, Minister of Parliament for Tarkwa Nsuaem, has asked Gold Fields Ghana Limited to review their decision not to sponsor Medeama Sporting Club again.
According to the club, they received a letter from the firm regarding the decision prior to the second leg of the CAF Champions League game against Horoya in Guinea but had to keep it from the playing body in order to keep them focused.
Despite losing 2-1 in Conakry, Medeama qualified for the group stage of the competition with a 4-3 aggregate win.
Duker has now called on Gold Fields to reinstate their sponsorship plans.
“We would ask Gold Fields to rescind their decision on the letter they wrote, indicating that they are unable to sponsor Medeama. That is very unfortunate,” he said.
“As part of their Corporate Social Responsibilities, we expect them to carry Medeama along and hold our hands to make Ghana proud. I believe that letter should not have been written at all.
“I don’t see why they should take some of the responsibilities of Medeama. I am asking them to rescind that decision immediately.”
