The government must also Cease Implementation of Astro Turf and Invest in Colts Football.
The Chairman of the World Human Rights Council for Africa, Nii Ayitey Anumle Oyanka I made this statement in an interview with thealhajj.com in Accra.
He also called on the leadership of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to stop sleeping on their Job and act responsibly.
According to the former footballer turned traditional leader in Ghana and who plied his trade-in Sweden in year 2009, “GFA is still not doing things right. Colts football is completely destroyed and completely useless, this is where we build talents and proper footballers”.
King Oyanka Noted that Community football in Ghana from time immemorial has been played on rough and grass-less pitches and produced quality players from those pitches.
One can boost of talent hubs like Bubuashie,Fadama, Tema, Ashaiman, Mamprobi, Nima Newtown, Darkuman, Teshie/Nungua and other areas where all had juvenile clubs producing talents on grass-less pitches.
This according to him, can be traced to two recent Black Stars captains, Stephen Appiah and Asamoah Gyan which duo had their formative football years on pitches without grass.
King Oyanka Noted with dismay the current crops of rich kids forcing their ways formed the national team.
“The problems in Ghana football predate even before the birth of Dede Ayew. When we last won the AFCON in Libya in 1982 even Dede’s father Abedi was still a youngster. So between 1982 up to date Ghana Blackstars haven’t won any trophy. Which player is to take these blame? GFA is to-be blamed for Ghana football Woes”, he stressed.
King Oyanka also fired some so-called Ghanaian Prophet for shedding nonsense about football that has no business with their work for God.
Nii Oyanka angry rebuked claims by one Prophet who claimed the black stars captain Andre Dede Ayew must apologise to some former senior players of the National team.
Which cup did Sulley, Gyan, KPB etc win for Ghana?? King Oyanka Quizzed.
He added that “Dede at least won Under-20 World Cup 2009. Dede owes nobody an apology”.
The government and GFA must just set up a DEVELOPMENT PLAN to guide as a road map and stop the lazy man’s approach of selecting players to play in the national team.
