The Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has denied reports that it has presented a budget of $7.2 million to government for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Reports circulating in the local media suggested the Committee has already prepared the budget for the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
According to the reports, per diem for the Black Stars players has been increased from $100 to $150.
There were also claims that the committee has already presented the full budget for the tournament to government.
However, in a statement, the committee urged the public to disregard such publications, insisting they are false.
“We wish to state unambiguously that the said publications are false,” a statement signed by the spokesperson of the committee, Dan Kwaku Yeboah, said.
The statement said the Normalisation Committee had not presented any budget to government concerning the AFCON.
It added that it was neither true that the per diem for the Black Stars players had been increased from $100 to $150.
“The Normalization Committee has not submitted any budget to government for the impending competition and would like to alert the general public to disregard any such reports.”
Meanwhile, the committee has come in for strong criticism in recent months after clashing with the league clubs over the formation of a competition.
The said competition was subsequently cancelled after both parties failed to reach an understanding.
