Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) chairman, Kudjoe Fianoo has posited the Ghana Football Association must convince the government before football resumes.

The president back in mid-March placed a ban on social gathering including football in a bid to contain the fast-spreading coronavirus pandemic. Since then Ghana’s coronavirus count has grossed over 24,000 cases.

The state and condition of the virus in the country has made the resumption of football a figment of the mind rather than a reality. However, the GFA recently announced that the second week of October has been slated for the safe return of football.

But the decision is not solely dependent on the Ghana FA with the government having an important stake in when football can resume safely.

Speaking to Oyerepa FM, veteran football administrator, Kudjoe Fianoo revealed his outfit will have to convince the government for football to resume.

“We [My self and the GFA President] met the Sports Minister to thank the Government through the ministry for coming to our aid by way of the YEA package and even asked him to work around the clock if we could get more,”

“For us to resume Football, we were told we have to convince Government beyond all reasonable doubt that whatever we want to do will be in the national interest but not some individual’s interest.”
