Football united this country.
The sport which used to be the passion of the nation has seen a stark decline in interest.
This, we believe, is as a result of the self-aggrandizement, greed, palpable corruption and selfishness among others.
We believe that the highly anticipated Anas Aremeyaw Anas undercover investigations into football will give this country the biggest opportunity to cleanse the game.
In view of this, The Press Foundation, will on Tuesday, 29th May, 2018 hold a press conference in Accra to detail the media on the demonstrations.
Another press conference will be held in Kumasi on Thursday, 31th June, 2018.
The demonstrations will be under the Theme; “SAVE GHANA FOOTBALL NOW”.
