The Chief Executive Officer of Tanink Ghana Ltd, franchise holders of Chrysler, Jeep, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Iveco, etc in Ghana,  has dismissed reports government, funded partly or fully the Jeep Grand Cherokees presented to the Black Stars and the management team.

Mr. Roger Klogo said the donation was a redemption of a long-standing promise made by Tanink Ghana Ltd to the Black Stars and has nothing to do with government.

According to him, he had promised the Chairman of the Ghana Football Association ahead of the 2014 World Cup during the trial match between the stars and Holland that if the Stars were to qualify to the semi-final stage of the competition, he would donate cars to all the players. He was one of 30 Chief Executives sponsored by KLM to Holland to watch the Black Stars' friendly match against Holland.

Mr Roger in an interview with Myjoyonline.com stated that even though the Black Stars failed to perform in Brazil, he was touched by the huge sacrifices the Black Stars made in risking their lives to play in a tournament that no country initially wanted to host due to the ebola scare - the AFCON 2015 tournament.

He said the Black Stars went ahead to play in the tournament with countries whose citizens had suffered ebola casualties and that was a supreme sacrifice worth acknowledging and rewarding.

It all started as a rumour when players and management members of the Ghana Black Stars were promised a Jeep Cherokee each for coming second at the 2015 edition of AFCON.

The Jeep Cherokee vehicle cost $76,000 each and would be supplied by Tannick Automobile.
