Blame NDC Government for putting Ghana’s 2018 World Cup in Jeopardy- Deputy Sports Minister Hazide

Ghana has a faint hope of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, and according to deputy sports minister Pius Enam Hazide, the previous NDC government must be held responsible for the current state of affairs.

The Black Stars are five points adrift of group leaders Egypt and three behind Uganda, who play in Kampala on Thursday, leaving Ghana’s hopes of reaching the finals in Russia in 2018 in serious jeopardy.

The NDC government supervised Ghana’s two group games in 2016 before being voted out of power.

Many football figures, including the Black Stars Vice Chairman, Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer laid the blame of the Stars poor show at the door steps of former coach Avram Grant.

But Deputy Sports Minister Hazide, however believes the NDC government must take blame for the current woes, insisting the previous government shirked responsibility in the first tow qualifiers.

Addressing the media during the Black Stars training session at the Baba Yara stadium on Tuesday, Hazide said “We still have believe and hope in the technical and playing body to deliver but it is not going to be easy looking at the log”,

“We are in this difficult situation as a result of the negligence of the previous government who looked on unconcerned for Egypt to lead us by five points difference which makes it a tall order for us to qualify”,

“Nonetheless we remain resolute behind the team and I believe with prayer and support from all Ghanaians, we can do it”.

The Black Stars will host the Red Devils of Congo at the Baba Yara Stadium on 1 September in the third group game.

The return leg will be played four days later in Brazzaville at the Stade Alphonse Massamba Debat.

Ghana are in third place with one point from the available six; five behind leaders Egypt who play second place Uganda on 31 August in Kampala.

  31. Nana Prempeh

    This has nothing to speak of politics because Prez Mahama and his vice didn’t wear the Jersey to play against Egypt and loose. So the sports minister should have a solution on qualifying than criticizing the opposition government

  54. Mampongheneba Odeneho-appiah Samuel

    Wen u talk too much everywhere, u end up having nothing sensible to say bcos ur sense talk is finished already… it a way of trying to inject more money in blackstars so that we will qualify at all cost? it a way of trying to raise the bar of de so called “indemnity n classified” cost the GFA is always using to dupe ordinary citizens of taxes?…is world cup the reason why u came to power?….common sense is different from book sense.
    ..2020 awaits us all!!
