How Isaac Asiamah blew US$320,000 on supporters in Egypt
"I'm ready to debate him anytime. If he doesn't know something, he should ask and he will be told. Does he know how much we took to the 2015 AFCON and how much was spent on supporters? There has never been an occasion that we've included supporters to the main budget for the AFCON. Every time it's only the Black Stars budget. For the first time, Isaac Asiamah included supporters' budget and that could not match what we spent in 2015, four clear years after. Each supporter that went to Egypt got over $800. Supporters that numbered over 400. They were given 400 in the first week and 400 in the second week. It was meant for them to cheer the team to victory," he fumed. "Then again I know that there are some corporate organizations that sent supporters to Egypt. When we got to Egypt, first game we realized that there was a problem with the attendance of supporters at the stadium. So there was an arrangement for the mobilization of supporters both in Egypt and from Ghana. We ended up shooting up the number of supporters," he told Joy FM in 2019. In a breakdown of the budget for the AFCON in parliament on July 24, 2019, Isaac Asiamah did not say a word about how government-funded supporters' stay in Egypt.
