The Sports Minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has revealed that his outfit is in a colossal debt of $20 million and could face the wrath of the law courts anytime.

Most of these debtors have summoned the Ministry to various courts in the country and this could see the accounts of the ministry frozen.

But Vanderpuye has explained that a higher percentage of the chunk of the amount was accrued by the Black Stars.

“As for the debt profile, it is very alarming because we are close to almost $20,000,000 and I can say that for sure when we put everything together.

“In terms of hotels, ticketing and travel especially the various national teams’ matches from the Black Maidens up to the Black Stars that is where the chunk lies also in terms of catering, laundry and the rest”, he told the press.

“So we are owing a lot of money that were supposed to be used to run the administration, ministry, Youth Authority, Winneba Sports College and all our leadership training programmes have virtually been used for football”, he added.

Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament of Odododiodio is confident his outfit will offset all debtors through a strategic payment plan.
