Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah has expressed worry about the delay in the commencement of the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League.
The new season and its related activities were put on hold a couple of weeks ago after Accra Great Olympics secured a court injunction to compel the Ghana FA to resolve some pending cases at the Appeals Committee from the previous season.
The Minister, in a meeting with some executives of the Ghana Football Association led by President Kwesi Nyantakyi to discuss the state of the sport in the country, described the current situation of the Ghana league as worrying.
“To have the league postponed indefinitely due to injunction is indeed a worry, not only to me but the people of Ghana having listened to media commentaries concerning the injunction,” Asiamah said.
“This is a country where football is the passion of the nation and so to see the league’s commencement put on hold definitely affects the game. It deprives both players and football fraternity what they love to do and this ultimately indicts us as a country with great football history,” he added
The Sports Minister hopes the impasse is resolved quickly.
“Once the matter is before court, it is my hope that the case is settled soon to pave way for our league to start,” Isaac Asiamah sated.
