Kurt Okraku lead administration upon assuming office on 25 October 2019 launched if not the best of slogans, one of such (#BringBackTheLove)
When such a powerful slogan was initiated, some of us who had doubts about the new leadership, immediately started thinking twice.
It was good, very good in the ears, the slogan instantly got the attention of all Ghanaians.
We thought and believed Ghana football was going to change for good.
But issues, like hooliganism, poor nature of pitches, bad officiating and others still in our game mean #BringBackTheLove was a mere slogan launched for populism purposes.
Day in the day out, avoidable issues that are tiny yet very damning to our game keep happening with nobody ready to correct them.
The second game of the second round of 2020-2021 Ghana Premier League game against Eleven Wonders and Asante Kotoko saw another culture of disregard and disrespect.
The game was scheduled to be played behind closed doors, a directive from the Football governing body in the country because of the deadly coronavirus pandemic. Yet,
The home side violated the directives and charged fans to pay GHC20 and above and filled the venue to the brim.
After the game, a picture hit social media where Asante Kotoko newly appointed and a former Black stars coach Mariano Barreto and his assistant was left to watch the game standing behind the perimeter wire fence for the entire game.
The two couldn’t sit at the bench of Kotoko because their work permits are not ready.
Elsewhere, the duo would’ve been given a seat in the VIP section just to avoid negative press which will go long way to affect the image of Ghana football.
