President Nana Akufo-Addo has encouraged Ghanaians to help Ghana Football Association (GFA)’s #BringBackTheLove campaign aimed at galvanizing support for the country’s football. 

The campaign was launched by new administration led by President Kurt Okraku.

Delivering the State of the Nation Address on Thursday, February 20 in Parliament, President Akufo-Addo expressed his delight with the return of Ghana football to normalcy.

Ghana football had been under the guidance of a Normalisation Committee put together by FIFA/CAF with the help of Government for a year. 

This was after an Anas documentary brought down the Kwesi-Nyantakyi led administration. 

”Government worked with Fifa, established the Normalisation Committee , and helped bring a new GFA into being.  I’m happy to note that football, the passion of the nation has returned to full normalcy following the election of a new President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr Kurt Okraku. I congratulate him on his election. The Ghana Premier League has started, and let us help “Bring Back the Love,” Akufo-Addo said.

Since the campaign was launched the interest for the domestic league games and national teams have been impressive. 

Last month, the Hearts of Oak versus Asante Kotoko Ghana Premier League match at the Accra Sports Stadium produced a record-breaking turnout with GH¢726, 380 generated from gate proceeds.
