I SUPPORT THE BLACKSTARS FOR CHARGING BEFORE PLAYING BECAUSE GHANA IS NOT WORTH DYING FOR – ALI JARRAH

Published

on

Retired Ghanaian goalkeeper Ali Jarrah has thrown his unflinching support behind the Blackstars players for charging the nation before making any appearance for the national team.

 

According to him, he supports fully the idea of charging and insisting that payments are made before they make any appearance for the national team at any tournament.

 

The ex-goalie Ali Jarrah revealed that the nation Ghana is not worth dying for considering how they were left without taken care of after sacrificing their lives for the nation.

Speaking in an interview on Kwese TV’s “After Sports” with Maame Adjoa, he revealed how he and his teammates were left not catered for after serving the nation dutifully but after their career, the care extended to them is zero. A phenomenon he disclosed started in 1963 to the 1965 team who won the African Cup to their regime

 

GHANA IS NOT WORTH DYING FOR – ALI JARRAH

“I do support Blackstars charging currently before dying for the nation. The reason is that the nation is not worth dying for. Nobody cares and after your career, it’s zero. That is true,” he said.

 

Ali Jarrah explained that football in Ghana doesn’t come with social security and insurance and most of their earnings in their days were from hand to mouth. A situation he likened to soldiers who go to war for their nation.

 

He further added that football is a seasonal career and at the end of it, everything returns to zero. The nation doesn’t care about your welfare leaving you to die slowly.

Ali Jarrah was called to the national team at age 15 and at age 17, got paralyzed. A situation that ended his football career abruptly but he is however grateful for how the nation took him to London for treatment in the first one and half years of his unfortunate predicament.

 

He is, however, appealing to the nation and the government to use just 1% from all football gate proceeds to support retired national team footballers. This support he believes can at least give them some pension cushion.

 

“For every football ticket sold at the stadium, 17.5% goes into education, why can’t they give us 1% to support soccer players – ex-footballers. I played only 3 years and got paralyzed and for 26 years I have to struggle for my own self, which is very bad,” he suggested.

 

“I have 2 children. If my child comes home from school to his father to even ask him for anything and you can’t afford to buy your child ice cream whiles your name has been spread over the nation, it is not worth dying for. It is serious. Nobody cares about it when you talk about it. When you talk about it, they don’t care,” Ali Jarrah lamented.

 

The ex-goalkeeper who has been part of 1993 under 17 Ghana national team has called on the nation and the government to come to their aid for all their selfless sacrifices.

 

Ali Jarrah further disclosed that he is still paying his dues to the nation and had by far trained over 360 goalkeepers who have won laurels for the nation Ghana.

COVID-19: Singapore Set Aside S$1.6 million For Arts And Culture

SINGAPORE: About S$1.6 million will be set aside for the arts and culture sector as part of support for the community amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and to prepare the sector for “post-disease recovery”, announced Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Culture, Community and Youth Baey Yam Keng on Friday (Mar 6).

“We want cultural performances to continue during this time as the arts inspire us and lift our spirits, as long as necessary precautions are in place. This is what MCCY (Ministry for Culture, Community and Youth) agencies and institutions – including NAC (National Arts Council), NHB (National Heritage Board) and PA (People’s Association) – will commit to, where possible,” he said in his Committee of Supply speech.

“We also want to encourage arts and culture practitioners to take this opportunity to develop their capabilities and better position themselves for the future.”

Part of the S$1.6 million will include a subsidy of 30 percent for venue rental and associated costs for arts and culture activities from Mar 7 to Jun 30.

This will be applicable at national cultural institutions such as the Esplanade, Arts House Limited venues, and the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre.

In addition, the National Arts Council will provide a one-time, enhanced capability development grant for individuals and arts organizations.

The aim of this grant, which will open to applications from Mar 16, is to promote upskilling and organizational capability development, said Mr. Baey.

These two initiatives are part of the Stabilisation and Support Package announced by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat during his Budget speech. The package was introduced to help stabilize the economy amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Package includes a training support scheme for self-employed persons, who will be paid S$7.50 per hour as training allowance when attending eligible programs.

NAC will continue working with SkillsFuture Singapore to curate arts and culture courses for arts freelancers to complement existing initiatives like the Arts Resource Hub.

“We encourage all eligible arts and culture professionals to tap on the available measures, including subscribing to the Arts Resource Hub, which is free, and prepare themselves for the post-COVID-19 upturn … We encourage arts practitioners to support one another during this time,” Mr. Baey said.
