The Badminton Association of Ghana (BAG) has reacted to its suspension from the Badminton Confederation of Africa (BCA) not to partake in the forthcoming African Championships over failure to settle some outstanding bills.
A statement released by the Badminton Association of Ghana (BAG) said the association’s failure to settle the debt was as a result of its inability to get funding from the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) for its activities due to the government’s current difficult financial situations.
It said BAG was still in-talks with the ministry to help find solutions to the issue. “We are in close touch with the ministry to resolve this impasse.”
According to BAG, it acknowledged the letter by BCA under the terms and conditions of a settlement plan put in place that would settle the aggregate outstanding to the two members association in a coordinated administrative manner.
“Once we receive release from the Ministry and donors to settle our past accommodation bills for tournaments that Ghana took part in.” it added
The Badminton Association of Ghana would be organising an All-Ghana Open Badminton Championships on July 9-10 this year and has received over 186 entries from the four categories, that was the Sub Juniors, Juniors, Seniors and the Masters.
