Isaac Asiamah captured on tape promising fans of a trip to tour sites in Egypt

Minister for Youth and Sports Hon Isaac Asiamah on Wednesday 24th July
appeared before Parliament to disclose to them budget used at the just
ended African Cup of Nations.

Among the issues he touched on included the performance of the team at
the tournament, monies that were used to cater for the players,
technical staff, fans and journalist among other people.

The Minister was asked about a purported state sponsored trip by the
Ministry of Youth and Sports of supporters, journalist and the whole
entourage to the pyramids and other tourist site in Egypt.

In parliament, the minister who appeared to be livid at the question
posed brushed it aside stating the number of times he has been in Egypt
and went further to state that the tour or excursion was catered for by
FIFA/CAF.

“That I led an excursion in Egypt? That is neither here nor there.Mr
Speaker It was a decision by CAF/FIFA to organize all supporters of
countries that participated for an excursion so as a minister I was
briefed and I communicated it to the supporters. That was what happened
so the Minister never organized an excursion for the supporters.

And for your information Mr Speaker, I have been in Egypt for more than
seven/eight ocassions and my last visit was four moths ago when I was
there for the Arab/Africa Youth Conference in Aswan Egypt. Its not true
so lets stop dwelling on these Social media discussions.” he fumed.

In the audio making rounds which was captured during a meeting of the
minister with the various supporters union in Egypt, the minister is
heading telling the supporters that their cry of boredom has reached his
office and is therefore organizing a trip for them.

The Sports Minister could be heard calling the board chairman of the
National Sports Authority Kwame Baah Agyemang and the deputy accountant
of the Ministry who in the audio the minister referred to as the purse
holder Hamidan to try and organize a trip for the supporters.
