The family of legendary Ghana Sports Administrator Ohene Djan has petitioned the Presidency to revert the Accra Sports Stadium name back to Ohene Djan.

It would be recalled that former president of Ghana, John Agyekum Kuffour named the Stadium after Ghana’s first Sports Director, but it was vehemently opposed by the Ga Traditional Council and they successfully got the name removed.
