The Black Stars B may have missed out on qualification to play in the 2020 CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN) but definitely did not fail to appear in the 2020 budget presented in Parliament on Wednesday.

Having lost 1-0 on aggregate to Burkina Faso in the qualifiers, Ghana for the third consecutive time failed to make it to the CHAN tournament scheduled to be hosted by Cameroon next year.

This appeared not to be the case on the floor of Parliament on Wednesday as the Budget presented by the finance minister, Hon. Ken Ofori Atta captured that the Ministry of Youth and Sports will facilitate Ghana’s participation in the tournament in Cameroon.

In 2020, the Ministry will facilitate the qualification and participation of all the
National Football Teams in various international tournaments including the Black
Stars preparation and qualification to the 2021 African Cup of Nations Tournament
in Cameroon, the 2022 World Cup Tournament in Qatar, the participation of the
Black Stars Team “B” in the 2020 CHAN Cup of Nations Tournament in Cameroun,
the qualification of the U-20 Football Team to the 2021 U-20 AFCON in Mauritania
and the qualification of the Black Starlets to the 2021 U-17 AFCON in Morocco

as quoted in the Budget Statement and Economic Policy of the Government for the 2020 Financial year.

Well, the question still remains whether this was just a clear case of a flaw or perhaps nescience?
