Afcon finals, presidents message


President John Dramani Mahama has charged
the Black Stars to make the nation proud by
winning the African Cup of Nations today.
The national team will battle the Elephants of
Côte d’Ivoire in what is expected to be an
explosive final at the Estadio de Bata in
Equatorial Guinea.
Speaking at the graduation of the 46th cadet
officers’ course of the Police Academy in Accra
on Friday, the President made reference to
that important game.
Rallying the nation
In typical fashion, he rallied the nation, which
had been starved of honours at the national
football level for 33 years, to continue to pray
for the team to win the ultimate trophy.
“We will continue to pray and hope the team
would make us proud and for the fifth time in
history, bring the African Cup of Nations
home,” Mr Mahama said.
He praised the team for the sterling
performance against Equatorial Guinea in the
semi-final match which saw the host nation
succumbing to a 3-0 scoreline before the
might of the Black Stars in that ill-tempered
He said Ghanaians were gladdened by the
important victory and expressed the hope that
the team would clinch the trophy today.
