The budget for AFCON23 will be revealed to Ghanaians after the tournament. This was disclosed by the Public Relations Officer for the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Charles Amofah.

Despite the Black Stars’ arrival in Ivory Coast for the continental showpiece, the Ministry of Youth and Sports is still discussing the national team budget for AFCON, and it will be made public after the conclusion of the tournament in Ivory Coast.

He called on Ghanaians to shift their attention from the budget to praying for Chris Hughton and his players to succeed in Ivory Coast. “The AFCON budget is a work in progress. Ghanaians will know after the tournament. For now, we will entreat everyone to pray for the team,” he told Angel FM.

Charles Amofah also stated that the Black Stars have received all necessary support from the ministry for a successful tournament in the African Cup of Nations scheduled to kick off on Saturday, January 14, in Ivory Coast. The ministry, in collaboration with the Ghana Football Association, organized a farewell event for the Black Stars, attended by dignitaries, including Hon. Mustapha Ussif, the Minister of Sports, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic, and Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku, President of the Ghana Football Association.

Speaking after the send-off dinner in Kumasi, the spokesperson of the ministry highlighted the thorough preparations made for the squad. “The team went into residential camping in Kumasi; everything that the government or the Ministry needs to give the team was put in place,” Amofah said in an interview with Peace FM. He further indicated that the primary target for his outfit is to provide unwavering support to ensure the team’s success in Ivory Coast. “The camp was very quiet, and everything went on very fine. What we are looking for is to give them support so that they go and be victorious in Ivory Coast,” he added.

The Black Stars had their first training session in Abidjan on Wednesday evening, following their arrival from Kumasi earlier in the day. This training session will be part of their preparation for the impending 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, which commences on Saturday, January 13, 2024.
