Following the exit of the Black Stars from the #TotalAFCON2019, Ghanaians will have the benefit of knowing the exact amount of money spent on the senior national team at the tournament, according to the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Youth and Sports Elvis Adjei-Baah.
The budget for the tournament which became a topical issue in the West African country will finally be settled.
Many Ghanaians were agitated when conflicting figures of $8m and $15m were speculated to have been the proposed budget of the Ministry with the sector remaining tight-lipped on it.
The Sports Ministry had, before the tournament, argued that the budget will be made public through the appropriate quarters after the tournament.
But with the disappointing exit of the Black Stars at the 1/16 stage, the platform looks ready for the Ministry to make the budget public.
“Now that the tournament is over is when we will know the real amount that was expended on the team. We can now have a very good idea of how much was spent on the team,” Elvis Adjei-Baah told Fox FM in Kumasi.
“It’s appropriate that now that the tournament is over for Ghana, if people are calling for the budget, we account to the very good people of Ghana since we have no option,” he added.
