    Written By Jerome Otchere - If the Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon Isaac Asiamah sought to impress us with his presentation of the AFCON 2019 budget and particularly how much was spent out of the budgeted amount, then he failed.

  • I have two simple questions. If we had won the title, would Ghanaians, bathed in unbridled euphoria, have noticed our eye-popping financial outlay involved in the tournament?
