Experienced Journalist and social commentator Ekow Asmah has revealed that he received just GHc 500 for his effort in helping D K Poison retrieve his locked up $45,000 from the state.

The outspoken journalist championed the course of the boxer as he lobbied with all eminent personalities leading to the recovery of the debt from the state.

Poison, 69, loaned the amount to Ghana out of his $75,000 earnings from his boxing bout in 1976 against Japanese opponent Shig Fukuyama.

In October 2020 Asmah facilitated a meeting between the ex-champion and the President of Ghana where he was assured of receiving his money. The following month the nation paid all the amount to Poison’s foreign account.

“I have heard all sorts of claims and commentary about how I conspired with Poison to hold the nation to a ransom. But, I tell you what the amount was paid to D K Poison’s foreign account somewhere last year and he gave me GHc 500 as a token for my effort. Something I wasn’t expecting by the way because there are times we have gone to places that I had to cater for his expenses,” he said on The File on GTV Sports+.
