Para athletes who represented Ghana in the just ended Tokyo Paralympics have petitioned the Ministry of Youth and Sports over their unpaid monies. According to Frederick Assor a para athletes who spoke on behalf of the athletes who represented Ghana at the Tokyo Paralympics, the board have refused to fulfill their end of their agreement and it is very worrying.
Frederick Assor reveald that they were only three para athletes who represented Ghana at the Tokyo Paralympics this year and their initial agreement was that, they were given a document which stated they will receive $5000 as an appearance fee and $100 per diem for 38 days. In total they were supposed to receive $8800 for representing Ghana, and according to the document they will receive 50% of such amount as initial payment.
Frederick says till now they have only received $2400 and no one is talking to them about when the rest will come as a result they had to petition them for answers.
He added that they were only 3 para athletes with 21 officials which he himself don't understand but the shocking thing is these 21 team of officials have been sorted leaving them who are paralyzed and it is so disturbing.
Thank you for reading.
