The Chief Executive Officer of Eleven Wonders, Albert Yahaya Commey has pleaded with the government of Ghana to allow football to resume because the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) did not adhere to social distance protocol during their 2020 Parliamentary primaries.
The governing NPP held the primaries on Saturday, June 2020 across the country, ahead of the upcoming general elections to be held in December 7, this year.
Pictures and videos from the various polling stations showed that the delegates failed to compy with the president’s social distancing directives and other COVID-19 protocols.
Some were not with face mask. Others were seen hugging after results were announced.
As a result, the experienced football administrator believes that football should return amid the fears.
“I was glued to my television last Saturday monitoring NPP parliamentary primaries and I must say they did not adhere to covid19 protocols,” Commey told Accra-based Angel 102.9FM.
“Therefore, I will plead with government to allow us to play our football.”
The game of football has been suspended since mid-March after the government placed a ban on social gatherings. Hope of football returning was dashed after the government extended the ban to July 31, 2020.
However, the Ghana Football Association is set to take a decision on the future of football activities on June 30.
