The Ministry of Youth and Sports was coughing up $8000 every month to cater for accommodation for Black Stars coaches, Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah has revealed.
The Sports Ministry last month acquired a permanent residence earmarked to house national team coaches in a move that was necessitated by the high cost of rent and hotel bills accrued as a result of accommodating the national team coach.
Speaking at the Forum for the establishment of the National Sports Fund, Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah, disclosed that the move was necessary because the Ministry could no longer afford to spend such an amount on accommodating a Black Stars coach.
“We have just acquired a house to accommodate the black Stars coach. Can you believe that we used to spend $8000 every month on accommodation for the Black Stars coach?
“Now with this house, we can save that money for other things,” he said.
