On June 28, 2006, a rank-and-file supporter of the New Patriotic Party popularly known as ?Appiah Stadium,? who has earned notoriety as a ?serial radio caller,? revealed in a radio conversation that the Government had sponsored about 150 Ghanaian individuals to travel to Germany to watch the World Cup. Appiah Stadium also revealed that similar government sponsorship had enabled him and some others to travel to Egypt to watch the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations. It was his exclusion
from the list of beneficiaries to the World Cup that apparently motivated Appiah Stadium to blow the whistle on what, until then, had been a secret practice involving the use of public resources for private ends.
