The Ministry of Youth and Sports is a confused one – Gary Al-Smith

The unveiling of fifteen (15) Ghanaian celebrities in the area of sports and showbiz as ambassadors for Ghana’s Brazil 2014 Worldcup campaign by the Ministry of Youth and Sports has met huge uproar from a lot of Ghanaians who have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction at the Ministry’s decision and referred to the move as an attempt to embezzle and waste the average tax payer’s money.  Gary Al Smith

Among the lot who have registered their displeasure is Accra based Citi FM’s vociferous sports journalist Gary Al-Smith who believes the national team, the Blackstars in itself would serve as better ambassadors for the country should they exhibit the best in performance and therefore found no need for the selection of the seven individuals.

Among the selected celebrities by the the Ministry of Youth and Sports are Shatta Wale, Grace Ashy, John Dumelo, Becca, Azuma Nelson, Tony Yeboah, Abedi Pele and others.

It is unknown the criteria by which these few were selected and the duties to execute in Brazil.

In a post on Facebook, Gary Al-Smith shared this;

“The Black Stars themselves are ambassadors for the country. We are already going to do a Ghana Village kominini to act as raconteurs for the nation in areas of trade, tourism and some other replicative BS.

Now we have selected 7 (?) celebrities in sport and entertainment to be official Ghana Ambassadors for the World Cup.

And yeah, it will be paid for with your money, in the end.

Unproductive measures from a confused ministry who simply want to show that they are working. Busy bodies.”

Do you share in the Ministry’s decision to take on board celebrities as ambassadors for Ghana’s Worldcup journey?
