Save Ghana Football: Let’s boycott Black Stars games, GFA will heed to our requests – Kankam Boadu

Participant in the Save Ghana Football demonstration, Bright Kankam Boadu, suggests a change in strategy for the group to effectively address the issues plaguing Ghanaian football.

Speaking on Pure FM, Kankam Boadu acknowledges that while demonstrations serve to highlight football’s challenges in Ghana, he doubts their efficacy in achieving desired outcomes.

Kankam Boadu advocates for a more aggressive approach, citing the perceived indifference of the Ghana Football Association. He proposes a radical shift, including boycotting national team matches, including those of the Black Stars.

He believes this new tactic will compel the Ghana Football Association to reconsider its operations and implement the group’s proposed reforms.

“My point is that there is as much as we can do with demonstrations. We can do demonstrations across the country and still not make the needed impact. If the people (GFA) do not want to act, they will not. My point is that we should move the demonstration from just walking on the streets to calling for boycotts, including Black Stars matches. Let’s do that until the right things are done,” he said.

Bright Kankam Boadu gave an update on the demonstration held on February 14, 2024. After the demonstration, the GFA issued a statement, expressing interest in meeting the convenors to discuss solutions to the challenges in Ghana football.

However, Kankam Boadu noted that the GFA has not fulfilled their promise and has ignored three follow-up letters from the demonstrators.

“We’ve written three reminders to the FA but they have not replied to any of them. We’ve also written to parliament so, we are waiting for them. We had support from parliament and the sports ministry for the Accra demonstration. All the relevant authorities received our petition. Parliament recognized us and promised to act on our concerns,” he disclosed.
