Each Black Satellites player is pocketing $10, 000 after winning CAF U-20 Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday. Half of the amount is taking care of a 10 - year investment plan for the youngsters. Is it the way to go?
First, it is worth mentioning that, His Excellency Nana Addo has to be lauded for the move to reward these gallant stars. They fought through hard moments to win the ultimate for mother Ghana. For the President to acknowledge their sweat by way of financial reward is stupendous. As earlier suggested, these players deserve to be recognized and celebrated in the best way.
Another major issue for discussion is the 10 - year investment plan. This option could only be described as a breathtaking initiative for the budding talents. For the next years ahead of them, they can easily have it at the back of their minds that, there is a future plan put together for them by the nation. They can fall it on depending on how it is invested, in case of any uncertainties.
Interestingly, were these players consulted in firming up such a decision? Are they comfortable with the manner in which their hard won reward is going to be invested? Have they consented to it?
The money belongs to these players, and as such they ought to part take in any direction through which their money will go.
Even if some of them are minors, their guardians should have been consulted before such an announcement.
Once it is their entitlement, they could have been given the entire package and those interested for investment plan could opt for it according to their own ways.
The initiative may not sit well with some of them, as they are humans and that should be looked out for.
The intentions behind this may be good but are the players satisfied in that direction.
