Ghana Football Not on The Decline – President Akufo-Addo President Akufo-Addo

President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo has rejected claims that the country’s football is on the decline.

According to him, the recent success chalked by the Black Stars B team at the just-ended WAFU tournament shows that Ghana is still a powerhouse when it comes to football.

The president made these remarks during an interaction with the Black Stars B team, who paid a courtesy call on him at the Flagstaff House to present to him the trophy they won last Sunday.

Ghana defeated the Super Eagles of Nigeria 4-1 in the final of the 2017 WAFU tournament played at the Cape Coast stadium.

And Akufo-Addo believes such a feat can only mean that the nation still has the magic touch when it comes to football.

“You’ve [Black Stars B] brought a lot of joy to this house, and also to the entire nation and we are here to congratulate you very warmly for your achievements,” the Ghana president said.

“A few days ago before the result of your achievement, I was having an argument with someone who was telling me that Ghana football was on the decline. And I said really, how?

“The country that produced James Adjae, Baba Yara, Osei Kofi, Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah, Asamoah Gyan. That country has run out of great footballers? That cannot be. And then lo and behold news came that you have won this competition in this excellent style.”

Akufo-Addo also confirmed that he will reward the Black Stars B team with a sum of $100,000 following their triumph in the tournament.
