Kotoko and Ghana legend Abukari Gariba is dead

A legend is gone indeed and will forever be missed. Abukari's name was a household word indeed when I was growing up in Kumasi in the 70s. Jumping over the wall of the Kumasi stadium to see Abukari and the other players was worth the risk. If the current generation thinks they adore soccer I wish they had lived during Abukari's era. Oh mine! What a sensation, the speed, the passion, the determination and the dedication. Now it has dawned on me that we were not just watching soccer but also watching the human endeavor and spirit and character. I never thought such a day would come but it has come. He gave his best and I learned from him in that way. Take care Abukari and may God richly bless you with perfect peace!

Kotoko should quickly build a stadium and install monuments to the names of these gallant men for the current and future generation to see them. After all, they have added something to our lives which for what I can see, we hardly forget.
