The Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYS), has denied media reports, which suggests that, an amount of $8 million, has been budgeted for the senior national team, the Black Stars for their participation in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.
A statement signed by Mr. Elvis Adjei-Baah, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of MOYS said, “i can say that there is no budget approved yet or in place for the AFCON.
“There is a delegation currently in Abu Dhabi trying to get a camping facility for the national team, so there is no way we would have come up with a budget once that is not even sorted yet.
“Once everything is concluded and is appropriate, we would communicate to the good people of Ghana how much budget has been presented or approved,” it added.
The ministry has come under intense scrutiny in recent times over reports that, $8 million has been budgeted for the Black Stars ahead of their campaign in Egypt.
