The Minister of Sports, Mustapha Ussif has clarified Ghana won’t use taxpayers’ money to fly fans to the World Cup in Qatar this year.
He however claims that the Ghanaian government is working with private corporations to fund for the fans’ travel to Qatar.
He made this revelation during an engagement on Citi FM.
Reasons Taxpayers’ Money won’t be Used to Fly Fans to Qatar
This is in line with the lessons learned at the 2014 World Cup, during which it became apparent that the government spent a lot of money to transport thousands of supporters to Brazil.
Ussif clarified that won’t happen again this year and added that private funding will be arranged to fly fans to Qatar.
“Government is trying to raise funds through Corporate Ghana to help us to take fans to support our Black Stars.
“We will not use State funds for this and that is why we are appealing to corporate Ghana to come to our aid,” he said.
But according to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Ghana will win this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar, making it the first African nation to achieve it.
The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated Ghana will be the first country to win the FIFA World Cup in Africa.
“I am of the firm conviction that Ghana will not only participate in the competition but will make the whole nation and by extension the African continent proud, with a great performance.
“I, therefore, want to urge all Ghanaians, in conclusion, to throng the Accra Polo Court to view the trophy and to be part of history, before we finally bring the cup home on 18th December. We, who were the first to gain our freedom and independence from colonial rule, will be the first to bring the World Cup to Africa”, the President said.
We won’t use taxpayers’ money to fly fans to Qatar, says Sports Minister
