Sports Minister Mustapha Ussif has expressed strong dissatisfaction with the Ghana Amputee Football team, the Black Challenge, for accepting donations without consulting his office beforehand. His criticism follows the team’s acceptance of a $10,000 donation on Wednesday, June 12, 2024, from former President John Mahama, who is running for president under the NDC ticket.

Ussif emphasized that the team should have coordinated through the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) before accepting any external donations. He stated, “When you come after the successes and there’s anything, the first point of call is this office [MoYS]. We’re not going to tolerate you using the state for your personal benefits.”

The Minister further pointed out a lack of transparency in the team’s actions, noting, “Unlike last year, this time when you landed and you came here directly, this year you started going from one place to another without any records to the government who sponsored you, and that cannot be tolerated.”

The Ghana Amputee National Football team, The Black Challenge, clinched their second consecutive AFCON title by defeating Morocco in the final.
