A big secret has been disclosed by a member of the Ghana Football Association’s Executive Council who doubles as the Chairman of the Black Satellites management committee, Dr. Randy Abbey, indicating that the national team is owing a Benin-based hotel.
The Black Satellites of Ghana made the country proud by winning the 2020 WAFU Zone B U20 Championship held in Benin after an impressive comeback win over Burkina Faso before fighting to lift the 2021 AFCON title in Mauritania
However, the GFA’s EXCO member and the team’s management committee chairman, Dr. Randy Abbey in a statement on Original FM said they are yet to pay their hotel debts after two years.
Speaking about the current situation of the national youth teams, the experienced football administrator sadly revealed, “As am talking to you now we still owe some hotels in Benin after the WAFU. During the U-20 AFCON in Mauritania I paid some of the debts from my own pocket. Before we were about to leave Nouadhibou they seized my passport just because we were owing.”
“For the ministry there was nobody there. During the tournament one of our players was admitted at the hospital following a clash and I had to pay that myself.
“But when we got to the capital that’s where the ministry came and we called the hotel owner to come before we sought things out.
“We still owe some hotels in Benin now.”
Dr. Randy Abbey, who owns Division One side Hearts of Lions retained his position as the Chairman of the Black Satellites management committee last year.
