The beginning of the new Ghana Premier League season which should have started on the 11th of February 2018 was already postponed twice due to the current legal battle between Great Olympic and the GFA.
Today on the 13th of March the Sports Minister Hon. Isaac Asiamah expressed his concerns about the delay of the league.
He declared that right now he is rather concerned about the jobs depending on the regular league business than on the sport events Ghana is missing out. As we all know a game of football in the national premier league is a huge event which creates jobs for many people such as food sellers, security guards, cleaning staff etc.
But with the ongoing delay of the league those people are forced to remain idle or search for different sources of income.
As a result of this the Sports Minister asked the GFA to resolve the differences as soon as possible while meeting the press today.
On the 15th of March Olympics and the GFA are set to meet again in the courtroom to finally settle their controversies. Let's hope they succeed, for the sake of the workers and for the sake of Ghanaian football.
