Policy to ban the Youth of Ghana from Betting-Ato Forson

The Member of Parliament for Ajumako Enyan Esiam constituency, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson has urged the government to introduce a policy to prevent the youth from engaging in sports betting.

His reason for saying this is because, in the 2021 budget, the gaming sector lost an amount of GH₵ 300 million due to leakages in the gaming sector. The Caretaker Finance Minister, Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu said the government will resolve this issue by introducing a tax in this sector.

But Dr. Forson believes that a policy to restrict sports betting will better than introducing taxes in the sector.
