[ad_1]

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.”

Read the full MOYS statement below:

It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Youth and Sports that some tour operators who are organizing supporters and visa applicants for the impending  Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko match that would be staged in London on March 7, have introduced non-refundable clauses in their financial packages for the trip.

The Ministry is cautioning the general public to be careful by thoroughly reading the entire agreement before making any financial commitments. 

The Ministry has learnt that, over the years, that has been the practice by some traveling agents to shortchange innocent Ghanaians most especially those who were not successful in their visa application process. 

The Ministry is therefore serving notice to the organisers that, it won’t sit aloof for any Ghanaian to be cheated and is asking the organizers to monitor the actions of these travelling agents. 

The Ministry would not hesitate to intervene to salvage any Ghanaian and if possible take a strong decision on the game.

Issued by the Communications Directorate
