Skipper of Ghana Premier League side, Aduana Stars, Elvis Opoku has pleaded with the president of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo to ease restriction on football after a long hold.
Speaking on Kumasi based Hello FM, the midfield anchor revealed that local footballers look helpless in such situations and therefore pleads with the president to lift the ban on football after a long halt to footballing activities in the country.
“I always say that we the local players are helpless. Because in the football institution, the local players cannot say we will demonstrate or write to government as the nurses or teachers do. I know the president is putting measures in place to bring football back.”
“I will be happy if the president lifts the ban on football now because we have sat home for long. This is our full-time work and not part-time.
I am pleading with the president to allow football to return soon”, he added.
Opoku was a member of the team that participated in the CAF Champions League in 2018.
