Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah (MP), has on behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the good people of Ghana, wished the Senior National Soccer team, the Black Stars the very best of luck as the team competes in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) Egypt 2019.
The sector Minister expressed confidence in the Black Stars, who have over the years been a force to reckon with, judging from their performances in previous editions of the tournament. He said the Black Stars are very capable of ending the 37- year long wait by annexing the AFCON trophy for the 5th time.
He said, “Government assures the nation that all logistics have been provided. The team must continue to live in unity and be committed to the task ahead as indicated by the President when he met the players prior to their departure for the tournament.”
“As the President said, without teamwork you cannot succeed so teamwork is absolutely critical. You have to work for each other. Helping each other to win the trophy, that’s the teamwork we are looking at.”
Hon. Asiamah appealed to Ghanaians to rally behind the Black Stars and passionately support the team as they strive to make Ghana proud.
“There is no doubt that a spirited support for our gallant team during the tourney will surely spur them on to deliver the trophy for Ghana,” he said.
