I know most of you would just not be happy at this news especially when a lot has gone on and many are crying due to the performance of the Blackstars at the ongoing World cup but nevertheless the players need to be paid so the government of Ghana according to the deputy Minsiter of Sports Hon. Joseph Yamin has airlifted an amount of $3Million to be delivered to the team in Brazil as they have refused online payments.
The Deputy Sports Minister, Joseph Yamin has revealed government has airlifted $3million cash to pay the appearance fee for the Black Stars in the ongoing World Cup Tournament in Brazil.
He confirmed that the Black Stars will by Wednesday, June 25, receive the money due them.
Mr. Yamin clarified that the money delayed due to a disagreement over the mode of payment and securing landing right for the chartered plane carrying the money to the senior national team.
Reports on Tuesday from Brazil indicated that the Black Stars were agitating over government’s delay in paying the money due them.
This led to a holding up of the senior national team’s departure for Brasilia where they are scheduled to play their final group match against Portugal on Thursday.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, Mr. Yamin explained that the Ministry wanted to use an e-banking transaction but the players insisted they wanted physical cash payments.
