The AGAMS Group, headed by its group Chair, Roland Agambire, has cautioned the public and individuals to desist from maligning the name and brand of the company.
The group also stated that none of its subsidiaries has been banned by the Youth Employment Agency due to monies they as a group owed the government.
In a statement released by the company, it noted that the group, Rlg Communications has settled its “indebtedness to the Youth Employment Agency, formerly Ghana Youth Employment & Entrepreneurial Agency (GYEEDA) and therefore does NOT owe government or for that matter, the YEA.”

The statement revealed that, AGAMS group on 31st December, 2014 paid an amount of GHC 2,050,590.42 to the state. It added that the amount paid which included interests finalized the instalment payments of the total amounts owed the state.
It added that, the company’s payment of its debt to the state is confirmed in a letter signed by the by Ghana’s Attorney-General’s Department on 6th July, 2015 stating that the debt was paid in full to GYEEDA.
The statement further revealed that two of the subsidiaries of Agams Holdings; Craftpro Ltd and Asongtaba Cottage Ltd have also complied with the government’s directive on the refund of monies to the YEA as contained in Attorney-General & Minister for Justice’s briefing to Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee on Tuesday, 15 March, 2016.
The statement ended by cautioning the public that neither of the Holding company or any of its subsidiaries have been blacklisted anywhere in Ghana and including the world, hence it advised the media to stop propelling rumours about the company.
