Ghana’s Ex-President, John Dramani Mahama has a piece of advice for Ghanaians.
Ahead of the Black Stars match against Gabon, Mr Mahama has called on Ghanaians to believe in the team.
He was hopeful Black Stars can do well despite being underdogs in the AFCON 2021.
Ex-President John Mahama recalled how the government then motivated the team.
He wrote in a post seen by Newshuntermag.com: “We have often gotten off to a shaky start, in many football competitions. But we pick up the pieces, and in some cases won the cup or ended up in the finals.
“Today as we meet Gabon in our second game of this African Cup of Nations Tournament, let us remember that we’ve been here before. In 2015, by the grace of God, appropriate motivation from Government and Ghanaians, the Ghana Football Association, the technical team and the playing body we surmounted a similar hurdle during that #Afcon.
“We played some spectacular Football and made it all the way to the finals.
I believe we can do it again! Let’s believe in our Black Stars. We might be underdogs, but we can win it. Go Black Stars!”
