The Community Relations Officer for the Youth Employment Company (YEA), Emmanuel Afriyie has stated that the delay in payment of the aid funds to the sports activities athletes is as a result of the vigorous vetting system getting completed by the National Sporting activities Authority (NSA).
The YEA signed a memorandum of knowing with the Sporting activities Ministry to give some relief money to athletes for the subsequent six months.
The NSA has confirmed obtaining all the checklist submitted by the different sporting disciplines but is yet to post the checklist to the YEA for payment to commence.
The payment was scheduled to start off in July but information collected by Pleased Sports indicates that the YEA is yet to pay back the Ghc 500 to the athletes.
Emmanuel Afriyie spelled out that the YEA is completely ready to spend the funds but is however ready to get the vetted listing from the Countrywide Sports activities Authority on athletes who deserve to profit from the reduction fund.
“It is true that we haven’t been capable to pay back for the month of July. We have been supposed to start shelling out in July but the dilemma now is that the Associations are continue to vetting the record of athletes to profit from the fund”, he told Odiasempa Kwame Oware on Wamputu Athletics on Content 98.9FM.
“This approach is quite rigorous to make sure that only the deserving athletes advantage from this mainly because it’s the taxpayers’ money”.
He indicated that the YEA is at any time all set to begin payment if the accredited record is submitted to the agency.
