2020 Presidential aspirant, Kofi Akpaloo, has vowed to invest hugely in Ghana’s football should he be voted as the country’s president in 2024.

Akpaloo, who is also the founder of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), believes the football sector has not received enough financial support to be able to achieve its desired targets.

According to him, a better investment will make the Black Stars competitive enough to be able to challenge for the World Cup as well as also help to nurture young talents in the country as the team has been left to depend more on foreign-born players.

“When given the mantle to lead Ghana as President in 2025, I will invest hugely in football so we can build a solid team that can compete and win the competition (World Cup) for Ghana,” Akpaloo told Kumasi-based Akoma FM.

“I see football as a business, when you invest well into it, you reap huge returns with its attendant and employment benefit for the citizenry.”

“I will invest an amount of $1 billion into the GFA, so they can develop and nurture talents. This will be another avenue for employment.”

He added that not only will he pay attention to football, but he will also ensure that other sporting disciplines are factored into his administration if he is entrusted with power at the end of the 2024 elections.

“We must support colts football and grassroots athletics, and this can only be done by investing in sports,” he continued.

“My government will provide financial support every year to team owners from the lower division to the Premier League, boxing, and other sporting disciplines.”

“Football will be a priority for my government when given the mandate by Ghanaians.”
