President Akufo-Addo has assured football-loving fans that the game will soon return.
Football activities in the country have been halted since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ghana declared its first case of coronavirus on 12 March. Three days later, the Ghanaian Government issued a decree prohibiting the movement and gathering of people in public places, with exemptions, to ensure the functioning of the society leading to all sporting activities being temporarily suspended, including the league and FA Cup for both men and women.
Although some restrictions, such as suspension of non-contact sports, were lifted by President Nana Akufo-Addo, the ban on contact sports, on the other hand, was extended.
The Ghana Football Association not knowing when the restrictions on football activities will be lifted called off the 2019/20 football calendar having initially suspended its various competitions.
However, in an interview with Takoradi-based Skyy Power FM, the President of the land has vowed that Ghanaians will soon be cheering their favourite clubs.
“Everybody knows I love football and the suspension has also affected me but it will be back very soon.. I don’t want to do anything that will hurt Ghanaians. I believe in one step at a time so gradually football will be back”, Akufo-Addo said.
Meanwhile, the GFA is awaiting approval from government after sending a proposal to start the 2020/21 football season in the second week of October.
