Ghana president Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo has offered his support to the Black Stars ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Egypt.
The government has provided adequate funds to support the Black Stars in their quest to win the continental tournament.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee released the following statement:
A statement read: "His Excellency Nana Addo will interact with the 29 players, technical and the management team to give the squad a much needed morale-booster."
"President Nana Addo has not hidden his desire to instill the famed Ghanaian patriotism, pride and honour in the players ahead of the soccer showpiece in Egypt."
"This was demonstrated by his swift intervention in a seeming captaincy row that had the potential to destabilize Black Stars preparations ahead of the tournament."
"It is note worthy that as the major financier of our national teams, government’s commitment to revitalizing Ghana football has been clearly demonstrated from the aftermath of the "Anas exposé".
"Led by the President, the government of Ghana has committed to work together to offer leadership in reforming football administration in Ghana and in Africa."
"The government has provided adequate funds to support the Black Stars in the quest to win Afcon 2019."
