Fanatics of local sports would have to endure another two months of the absence of the games.
This is because President Akufo-Addo has extended the ban on the various disciplines till July 31 as part of Ghana’s Covid-19 fight.
In his 10th address to the nation, the President said; “I have, by Executive Instrument extended the suspension of the remaining public gatherings, as set out in E.I. 64 of 15th March, until 31st July.”
“In here, I refer to the suspension of sporting events, nightclubs, cinemas, drinking spots, bars, beaches, festivals” he said.
Government’s decision was based on a stakeholder-engagement with persons in the sporting industry.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo said it is crucial that Ghanaians improve their fitness levels, and adopt healthy eating practices in order to boost the immune systems.
