Ghana Legend Mohammed Polo has commended President Akufo-Addo for setting up a four member committee to raise an amount of $15 million to support the Black Stars participation at AFCON 2022 as well as the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The committee is headed by the Minister for Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif, with his Deputy Evans Bobie Opoku, who has yet to go through vetting, as a member.
Other members include the Ghana Football Association President, Kurt Okraku, and former Ghana international Sammy Kuffour.
Reacting to this on Plan B FM ‘Kawadwen Sports Showwith Dan K. Pobi ‘Okocha’, the former Hearts of Oak Coach said the setting up of the four member committee is a step in the right direction to ending the country’s 40-year AFCON trophy drought.
“During our time that we won the AFCON, we had visionary leaders like Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Acheampong and JJ Rawlings. Nana Addo also a visionary leader in his time thinks this is the best way to go for us to win the AFCON. I support him with that” he said
“It’s possible we can win the AFCON and the World Cup. The president has done the right thing by pumping this huge sum of investments into the Black Stars. We need to support it,” he concluded.
