The Ministry of Youth and Sports, has warned that it “would not hesitate to intervene to salvage any Ghanaian and if possible take a strong decision on the game” if steps are not taken by organizers to stop Travel and Tour companies from “shortchanging” Ghanaians.
Asante Kotoko will play Hearts of Oak in a friendly match in London on March 7 and Travel and Tour companies are rushing to take advantage of the game and have announced various travel packages for the trip.
In a strongly worded statement issued by the Communications Directorate of the Ministry, the MOYS noted that it had taken notice that some Travel and Tour companies “have introduced non-refundable clauses in their financial packages for the trip” and cautioned the general public “to be careful by thoroughly reading the entire agreement before making any financial commitments.”
The ministry said “it won’t sit aloof for any Ghanaian to be cheated and is asking the organizers to monitor the actions of these travelling agents.”
