Keta Business College (KETABUSCO) has been banned indefinitely from the Spriteball championship competition. The ban comes on the back of investigations carried out by the Ghana Education Service (GES) into allegations against the school for fielding unqualified players in the competition.
The decision to ban the school comes after GES’s Deputy Director-General Anthony Boateng, National Physical Education Coordinator Emmanuel Dormenyah, Deputy Physical Education Coordinator Cynthia Wise and Rite Sports CEO Yaw Sakyi Afari met with some staff from KETABUSCO to discuss issues surrounding the eligibility of some of the players.
In a statement released by the Organizers of the Sprite ball championship, they stated that the PE master of KETABUSCO Daniel Kovor confessed to presenting five unqualified players for the competition. In addition to being banned, the school has since been instructed to return the trophy and all items presented to them.
“PE Master Daniel Kovor admitted that five (5) of the players presented at the Championship were not qualified to play. They were instructed by the Deputy Director-General to return the trophy, cash and other items…”
Below is the Full Statement from the organizers of the Sprite Ball Championship.
The GES will soon issue a statement in regards to the punishment for the Headmaster and PE teachers of the school.
This is the first time ever KETABUSCO has won the title, they beat Mfantsipim School 48-40 in the Boys Division Final; the win was KETABUSCO’s second over Mfantsipim in the competition following a 32-24 win in the opening game.
