Former Black Stars player, Reverend Osei Kofi has once yet again opined that Ghana’s failure to get an additional AFCON title considering the fact that 1982 is mainly because of the unresolved non secular challenges all-around the staff.
Rev. Osei Kofi has timelessly professed that the incapability to gain the trophy is since of curses that some previous gamers of the Black Stars positioned on the workforce after the government reneged on the promises manufactured to the past AFCON winning workforce. Some of the retired gamers were adamant that until the promises to them are redeemed the workforce will not get yet another AFCON title.
In a bid to triumph over that doom, former president, John Mahama compensated every participant in the squad five thousand bucks to overturn the curse to make the workforce acquire the trophy. Nevertheless, to some extent, the spell was overturned but not entirely as Ghana created it to the finals in 2015 but missing on penalties to neighbours Ivory Coast.
According to 1965 AFCON winner, Reverend Osei Kofi the close to-misses in 2010 and 2015 occurred simply because the compensation package deal supplied to them by former President Mahama was not ample.
In his opening assertion to Ghanaweb on Tuesday, the 79-year-aged claimed: “One factor I have to notify the country is that they have to know that it is religious.” “When the previous President, John Mahama decided to compensate us, he gave us $5,000 as an alternative of the dwelling and look at what turned out, Ghana went to the finals, (we shed the) penalty shootout since I termed it as God just recognized element of it not entire,” Rev. Osei Kofi mentioned.
He extra that “A promise is a assure. It is the head of the condition who promised on behalf of the country, we are statesmen, we don’t provide any get together, we are in for the country, so if the head of state claims, then he guarantees for the nation and If the head of point out dies, the nation doesn’t die so they have to fulfil the guarantee and let’s see.”
Despite the prophecy made by a regional prophet that Ghana will go forward to carry the wonderful cup that has eluded the place for 37 a long time if Andre Ayew is created the captain, the previous Black Stars participant insists the curse will be reversed if the states decides to “settle down and do the ideal matter,” which is to fulfil the promises due to the fact “If you ring Dodoo Ankrah or Joseph Carr nowadays that we (Ghana) are likely to Egypt for AFCON, the only issue they will say is until eventually these persons settle us, they won’t gain the Cup.”
