Churches, Companies among others have supported government in the fight against Covid-19.

According to Nana Kwesi Darlyn, the GFA need to follow suit, by donating part of the $500,000 to government to prove that they share in the challenges they are encountering at the moment.

“Personally I think there must be a donation to government’s Covid-19 fund, so that they will see that GFA is responsible”, he told Asempa Sports.

“So that it will not protray the picture that we always want to receive.”

“If we allocate even a small amount to them and government notices that we are responsible, then they might even consider topping up the money for us because of our kind gesture”.

“I want us to show the government that (we are responsible ), I don’t think its something that’s difficult, the ExCo will sit down and realise this makes sense so they will pick it up” he concluded.
