Former President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi has singled out Mr Ransford Antwi, for his immense role in helping Ghana land the lucrative sponsorship agreement with manufacturing giants Puma in 2005.

The Ghana FA signed a reported 8 million dollar deal with Puma months after qualifying for the first World Cup in 2006.

Speaking in an interview with Joy Sports, Nyantakyi revealed that, Mr Ransford Antwi, owner and CEO of Sunyani-based Suncity Radio, was one of the key persons who brokered the relationship between Ghana and Puma.
