The Minority leader in Parliament “It [investing in football] is distressing financially when you look at the amounts you pump into it. There are no immediate returns. You’ll hardly get anything in return for 4/5 years.”
In the foregoing, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu wants a legislation to be passed that will target using corporate social responsibility to fund sports.
