Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has directed the country’s sports authority and the football association to ensure strict compliance with directives put in place to fight COVID-19 in various stadiums across the country.
In his 23rd broadcast to the nation late Sunday to outline measures put in place by the government to contain the spread of the pandemic, the president said the country’s case count was surging at an alarming rate.
“The National Sports Authority (NSA) and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) should ensure compliance with the 25 percent capacity rule in our stadia, with spectators respecting the social distancing rule and wearing of masks,” he noted.
All contact sports and football-related activities were banned in Ghana by the government in March last year due to the pandemic.
However, following the situation’s improvement, the government eased some of the restrictions last November allowing for 25 percent capacity rule of spectators in stadiums. Enditem
