AFCON 2021: President Akufo-Addo send goodwill message to Black Stars

Ghana President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has sent best wishes to the Black Stars of Ghana as they begin their quest to end the AFCON drought.

The four-time African champions are aiming to end the 40-year wait for the AFCON trophy having last won the tournament in Libya in 1982.

Ghana this afternoon at 4:00 pm will open their campaign against Morocco at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo before playing Gabon and Comoros in the other Group C matches.

President Akufo-Addo in his message charged the Black Stars to end Ghana’s AFCON drought by winning its fifth trophy. He believes coach Milovan Rajavac has the best of talents at his disposal to bring the trophy home.

He admonished playing bodies to be each other’s keepers as with a unity front they can do soo much.

He further called on Ghanaians to get behind the team.

“I send best wishes from all Ghanaians to you the playing, technical and management teams of the Black Stars.

Like with every other edition of AFCON, the Ghanaian people nothing short of ultimate from the Stars.

The pressure to succeed is understandably high because of our status of four-time winners and also because it’s 40 long years since we last lifted the trophy.

We have to bring the 40-year drought to an end. The task is daunting but not insurmountable.

I believe with the current crop of players we have the talents to match any team on the continent.”
