President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

The president of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo has reassured Ghanaians that football will soon be back after months of absence due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Football in the country has been suspended since March due to the pandemic.

The uncertainty surrounding the resumption of football led the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to annul the 2019/2020 season.

As part of measures being put in place to bring the sport back, the GFA has already presented an elaborate plan to clubs detailing a road map to bringing football back in the country under strict COVID-19 protocols.

The president, who is on a tour of the Western Region, indicated in an interview with Sky FM in Takoradi that football will eventually return when conditions are safe enough.

“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” he concluded.
