‘’I am humbled to be called upon to say a few words, to say thank you for the show of love and for responding to the call of our President for this all-important national assignment. My first thank you goes to our President, the number one supporter of football in this country,” the GFA capo said.

Kurt Okraku continued, ‘’I am not surprised that again our President has shown the way. Again today, he has shown the love for our people. Again today, he has shown the need to bring happiness to millions of Ghanaians because Ghanaians love our football.

“On behalf of our reenergized football industry, I thank you immensely for always being there for us. What you have done today will bring happiness to millions of Ghanaians. God bless you.”
