Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss Lepowura Alhaji Mohammed Jawula has called for the country’s government to help bring football back.
All football activities in Ghana have been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Jawula, speaking at the International Press Centre after John Vigah’s book launch on the Brazil 2014 World Cup, appealed to the government to bring the ‘beautiful game’ back to the people of Ghana.
“The state must assist the Ministry of Youth and Sports to bring back football, I think some of the COVID -19 funds must be given to football because the players are important,” he noted, as quoted by Football Ghana.
“It’s like a creeping child and the government must help our players who are good and solid.
“I believe Ghana can come out of the pandemic, which is a natural cause, and we must be able to put football on its feet,” he emphasised.
Jawula added, “Indeed, I’m sure with the support of the government, the game will return with delight by October.”
