Are You Out Of Your Mind?…$4.5m Doesn’t Make Sense; Nyantakyi Has Been Vindicated – Sefa Kayi
The Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Kwame Asiamah has presented to Parliament the total amount of money spent by the Senior National Team, the Black Stars at the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
According to the Minister, the state spent $4,564,532.00 during the competition.
There have been several reactions to this including that of Kwami Sefa Kayi, host of Peace FM‘s flagship morning show ‘Kokrokoo‘.
“…Black Stars is a cash cow for some people…Kwesi Nyantakyi has been vindicated….you are going into a tournament knowing fully well the eventual winner will take home $4.5m, yet you sit and prepare a budget over $6m; which is more than the prize money?…if it was your own money, would you spend it this way?…we were kicked out during the second round stage yet the country spent $4.5m, the amount of money we would have received had Ghana won the cup… it doesn’t make sense….Understandably, if we had won the cup, the euphoria, prestige and glory would have been intangible. But seriously, you don’t go and do this and think it is okay and i hear some people are justifying this by saying it was the same under Nyantakyi’s era…are you out of your minds?!…This is Ghana oo,” Sefa Kayi laments on Black Stars AfCON 2019 Budget.
