A statement from the GFA said: “We’ve received some positive news that Christian Atsu has been successfully rescued from the rubble of the collapsed building and he is receiving treatment. Let’s continue to pray for Christian”.
Meanwhile, Ghanaians from all walks of life have expressed gratitude to God following Christian Atsu’s rescue and have also consoled families who have lost their loved ones.
