The Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Kweku Baako Jnr has described the debate surrounding the total amount spent by the Black Stars at the just ended AFCON as 'premature ejaculation'.
The Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Kwame Asiamah told Parliament on Wednesday that the state spent $4,564,532.00 during the competition.
This figure has generated a lot of controversies as many feel the amount is too much especially considering the fact that the team was evicted at the round of 16 stage of the tournament.
Ace broadcaster and host of Peace FM morning show 'Kokrokoo', Kwame Sefa Kayi in reaction to this said it 'doesn't make sense' to spend such an amount describing the Black Stars as a 'cash cow'. Click to read
Reacting to the amount spent and the controversies surrounding it, on Joy Newsfile programme, Saturday, Kweku Baako said 'nothing has gone amiss'.
According to him, the amount will be subjected to auditing and verification" therefore the hullabaloo is 'too early'.
"I think it is too early; it is premature ejaculation...we should wait. For me, nothing has gone amiss. People, of course, are right to question...But everything will be discoverable after an audit. So why the rush? The figures the Minister presented are preliminary, subject to verification. It is too early for the kind of noise going out there” he said.
