General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Prosper Harrison Addo on Tuesday called for collaboration between the police, media, and other stakeholders in football to deal efficiently with the rising spate of hooliganism in football.
Speaking at a forum themed on Hooliganism in Football, Addo said all stakeholders must get involved to nip hooliganism in the bud.
“The laws of the country must be enforced through stakeholder’s collaboration to ensure that persons who engage in hooliganism are dealt with by law enforcement agencies,” said Addo.
“We are committed to eradicating hooliganism in Ghana football extensively but would require the support of all stakeholders,” he stated.
He recommended that the government of Ghana must equip the police to provide holistic security across all stadia of the country.
“Security must transcend to other parts of the country especially at lower-division venues,” stressed Addo.
The forum brought together officials of the GFA, club executives, former players, sports journalists, and other stakeholders to discuss and recommend measures to stop hooliganism in Ghana football. Enditem
