Finance Minister Paid Almost $800,000 To The GFA Despite The Economic Crisis

Renowned sports journalist, Atta Poku has revealed a deep secret about the amount paid to the Ghana Football Association during a friendly match against Brazil and Nicaragua. He revealed that an amount of $800,000 was paid to the GFA despite the economic crisis happening in the country. The match was played in preparation for the world cup which is yet to happen in Qatar this coming November. He explained by saying, the said amount paid to the Association covers their expenditure in the game.

"Got in touch with 3 MPs who told me they were dismayed to find out the Finance Minister paid almost $800,000 to the Ghana Football Association just last week, in spite of all the challenges we face. The money covers their expenditure in the Brazil and Nicaragua games".

Many people in the country are suffering because of economic hardship happening. There has been a sharp increase in prices due to the cedi depreciation against the dollar. The dollar as of 25th October 2022 is sold at Gh¢15.20. The concern of the renowned journalist is about how such a huge amount was paid to the GFA despite what is happening in the country.
