The Ministry of Youth and Sports has dismissed media reports suggesting that it has abandoned the sporting sector to its fate in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

According to ministry, the reports are inaccurate as it has since the outbreak of the viral disease in the country, been in constant touch with various stakeholders to plan the future of the sector.

In a statement dated May 27, 2020, and signed by its Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Annang, the Ministry indicated, for instance, that it is currently considering some appeals for a stimulus package made by some stakeholders and the results will be announced in due course.

“The Ministry has indeed received a number of requests from stakeholders in the sports sector, which the Ministry is considering for a stimulus package peculiar to the sector.”

“By itself, the Ministry has earlier met stakeholders, particularly those preparing for various international games and competitions to design packages that will cushion them….These discussions will also cover all other local competitions,” the statement noted.

It added, “the Ministry will, therefore, wish to assure the public that as and when these proposals mature, the appropriate announcements will be made in respect of government’s support for the sports sector.”
