There are still Ghanaian supporters in Egypt – Gov’t

There are still some Ghanaian supporters in Egypt, 3 weeks after the Black Stars of Ghana exited the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, according to the Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Elvis Adjei-Baah.

The Ministry has come under heavy criticism from Ghana’s for blowing cash on hundreds of supporters in Egypt, all though the Djamefe Commission advised government against flying football fans to competitions.

Sector Minister, Isaac Kwame Asiamah, revealed last week that the country spent $4.5 million on its failed AFCON campaign.

Ghanaian fans and journalists stayed back weeks after Ghana exited the competition, being accommodated and fed at the expense of the tax payer.

“I can’t tell you the exact number of supporters we took to Egypt for now,” Adjei-Baah told Joy FM when asked about the number of fans taken the ministry took to Egypt.

“There are still some supporters in Egypt and we can only tell you when everyone returns,” Adjei-Baah said.
