The 20-year-old who resides in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region now drives ‘Pragyia’ to make a living; a gesture which has been commended by many.

Speaking to Kumasi-based Opemsuo Radio, Nuhu disclosed that he has had to drive in order to earn money to cater for himself.

“I’m a professional player and because there’s no football I decided to work for a living.

“I don’t feel shy because I know what is good for me. I cannot beg for money and if I’m to do, how much would I get?

” I’ve been seeing some players but it doesn’t bother me. I am happy with it and I know by the time football returns I’ll be ok.”

The good of Ghana have extended the ban on social gatherings until July 31,2020. This is to reduce fresh COVID-19 pandemic cases.
