Stop Complaining About Amounts Paid To Black Stars As bonuses – Kennedy Agyapong to Ghanaians

Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin Central Constituency and aspiring Flagbear of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has said he disagrees with persons who criticize Black Stars.

He is of the view that the sums paid as winning bonuses to the squad are required and justified because that act as incentives to the players to represent their country.

Honorable Agyapong argues that the players take huge financial risks when they represent the nation and that they should be given compensations that are commensurate with the risks taken.

He said he does not have a challenge with paying the players to play for the country and that the stars need to be encouraged to come home to play for the country.
