Sports Journalist, Saddick Adams also known as Sports Obama has called on the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to dissolve the 5-member committee who have been tasked to search for a new coach for the Ghana National Team, the Black Stars.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has established a 5-member committee to search for a new coach for the Black Stars after the former coach Chris Hughton was sacked following the team’s abysmal performance in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Ivory Coast.

The committee is chaired by Vice President of the GFA Mark Addo, other members are: legal practitioner and law lecturer Ace Ankomah (Esq.), Director of Coaching Education of the GFA Professor Joseph Kwame Mintah, Ghana football legend Opoku Nti, and William Caesar Kartey, Chief Director of the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

According to the GFA, the committee has three weeks to recommend the next Black Stars coach to the Executive Council for approval.

Reacting to this on his X account, the 2018 Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) sports journalist of the year stated that the committee will not bring any positive impact on Ghana football.

Saddick Adams said Akufo Addo should act as a leader who cares about the image of the country because Football is one of the biggest tourism avenues.

He also called on the president to instruct the sports Minister and the GFA to render an unqualified apology to Ghanaians for disgracing the country.

“Respectfully ACT as a leader who cares about the image of the country. Football is one of the biggest tourism avenues. Instruct your minister of sports to instruct the GFA to issue an apology to the entire nation and fans for the embarrassment. Hold on with the search and get a caretaker manager for the team.”  He wrote.

“Your reign has characterized two successive most disastrous AFCON campaigns in our entire history. DISSOLVE that sham of a committee before they even start the walk to no where.” He added.

“Demand an emergency technical and management report and budget of the AFCON and get neutral experts to properly investigate and appreciate the ills of the campaign. Be a leader! Do not encourage mediocrity and be rewarding incompetence. That has never been the Ghanaian standard.”

Dear @NAkufoAddo

With all due respect, dissolve the committee that is to search for a new Black Stars coach.

The next coach will be paid thousands of dollars with our taxes.

Respectfully ACT as a leader who cares about the image of the country.

Football is one of the biggest tourism avenues. Instruct your minister of sports to instruct the GFA to issue an apology to the entire nation and fans for the embarrassment.

Hold on with the search and get a caretaker manager for the team.

Demand an emergency technical and management report and budget of the AFCON and get neutral experts to properly investigate and appreciate the ills of the campaign.

Be a leader! Do not encourage mediocrity and be rewarding incompetence. That has never been the Ghanaian standard.

Your reign has characterized two successive most disastrous AFCON campaigns in our entire history.

DISSOLVE that sham of a committee before they even start the walk to no where.
