Estimated read time 2 min read

A protest organized and led by Ghanaian journalists and footballer lovers dubbed #SaveGhanaFootball is set to go on today after days of planning and preparation. Led by renowned sports journalist Sadick Adams known popularly as Sports Obama, the protest is to push for change in how Ghana Football is administered.

Public sentiments reached peak levels following another dusty performance by the Black Stars at the just-ended African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast. Ghana failed yet again to make it past the group stages. A 2-1 defeat to Cape Verde on match day one followed painful yet shameful draws against Egypt and Madagascar. On both occasions, the Black Stars surrendered precious leads to drop two points.

Ghanaians took to social media to vent their frustrations while others championed the need for a complete reform. Soon after the decision to protest was made public, the GFA hurriedly organized a Press Conference in Kumasi. During the conference, the GFA president Kurt Okraku said he wants the Black Stars to succeed. Nonetheless, the #SaveGhanaFootball demo will go down as planned.

According to the organizers of the protest, the event will begin at 9 AM on Wednesday at Obra Spot, Kwame Nkrumah Circle. Speaking on Angel Sports, Saddick Adams said the organizing team has visited at least 200 people. He said when the team visited Togbe Afede, owner of Accra Hearts of Oak, the revered businessman and Chief said if he had the power he would barr GFA administrators from owning teams.

Concerns raised by organizers are the selection of players for the national teams and the monetization of the Black Stars management team among others.
