The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Continental Club Masters in the Ghanaian premier league, Accra Hearts of Oak, has thrown his weight behind government’s decision to re-structure football administration in the country, and says there is no need to rush things up.
Although the Ghana premier league was halted when it was just fifteen weeks old, Opare Addo sees everything right with the decision, so long as it would bring sanity into the game.
Mr. Addo, who was contribution to a program on Asempa FM on Tuesday, said Hearts of Oak is against anything that would drag Ghana football into the mud, and suggested that everything must be done to redeem the image of the game.
“We should make sure the sanity we want in the game is what we get. It is unfortunate that football is not being played currently, but it is worth waiting”, Mr. Opare said.
According to him the dissolution is important and a step in the right direction, so long as it stands to revive the goodwill of the game.
“If the delay will bring sanity into our game, it will be best for Ghana. The rot is enough and we must get rid of it.”
It is recalled that the Ghana Premier League was halted in June, 2018, following a documentary by veteran investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The expose has come under heavy criticism from a section of football-loving people in the country, but majority of Ghanaians see it as appropriate for the cleansing of the system.
