Can we use the money supposed to be spent on Black Stars WC round 16 to buy desks for students? – John Dumelo asks



Ghanaian actor and politician John Dumelo has suggested that the money that was supposed to be spent on Black Stars if they qualified to the World Cup next round of 16 be used  to buy desks for school children who sit on the floor to learn.

Over $8 million was allocated for Ghana Black Stars’ group-stage appearance at the 2022 FIFA World Cup meanwhile the prize money will grow from $9 million to $13 million if a team makes it through the group stage and into the round of 16, according to Mustapha Ussif, Minister of Youth and Sports.

However, Ghana lost to Uruguay 2-0 and was unable to advance to the next round of the competition.

After the contentious loss to Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup quarterfinal, the Black Stars needed to win this game, which they termed the “revenge game.”

However, they were eliminated from the tournament since they were unable to score any goals.

John Dumelo raised a concern in a tweet following their loss and said that the remaining money from the Black Stars World Cup Fund should be utilized to buy desks for classrooms where pupils now sit on the floor to study.

Taking his concern to Twitter, he said;

“The money supposed to be spent if we had qualified to the next round, can we use it to buy desks for students who still sit on the floor to learn?”
