The Member of Parliament for Yagaba – Kubori in his address to Parliament on Wednesday, revealed how much was spent at the tournament by the Black Stars.

Ghana exited the group stage after losing two games against Portugal and Uruguay.

” Mr Speaker, you may recall that prior Ghana’s participation in the World Cup in Qatar , I informed the House that our estimated budget for the group stage of the World Cup was $8, 166, 200.00″, Mustapha Ussif said on the floor of Parliament.

He explained that, the expenditure “covered appearance fees, per diems, flight arrangements , medicals, equipments, logistics and hospitality.

“Mr Speaker, the reason for the Surplus of over $3m Dollars, after our exit at the group stage , is as a result of the Ministry’s prudent management of resources, as well as the Ministry’s decision to negotiate a qualification bonus to the next round, instead of paying winning bonus per match.

“Eventhough we would have been happy for the Black Stars to progress for us to pay the qualification bonus ,this measure has also saved the nation some money, which will go back to our continuous sports development “, he added.
