The Ministry of Youth and Sports has put Hearts of Oak's clash against Asante Kotoko game in London in doubt after revealing that they won't hesitate to cancel the game following reports that some travelling agencies are planning to exploit Ghanaians through visa acquisitions.
The MOYS has cautioned Ghanaians to be careful by thoroughly reading the entire agreement before making any financial commitments.
In recent times, some of the travelling agencies have exploited some Ghanaians and the Ministry won't sit aloof for any Ghanaian to be cheated by these travelling agencies.
Below is MOYS full statement:
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.
