GOC support boycott of 2015 All Africa Games

Ghana Olympic Committee’s General Secretary Richmond Quarcoo is in support of the threat issued by the chairmen of the various sporting federations to boycott the 2015 All Africa Games.

The chairmen of the 38 sporting federations that have qualified to compete in the games to be staged by Congo Brazzaville in September have resolved to pull their teams out of the competition over lacking funds from the Sports Ministry.

The Sports Ministry have been handed a Friday deadline to make funds available to the federations to prevent them from boycotting the games.

“There is no point going to the games if we haven’t prepared,” Richard Quarcoo said.

“Don’t forget that the countries that we will be competing against have prepared and for us three months to the competition we have not prepared.

“There is therefore no need for us to go to the competition to cause financial loss to the state.”
