Mr Kurt Okraku, the President of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] has said his desire is to help to end the country's Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon] trophy.

Ghana has gone 38 years without a continental trophy.

Mr Okraku speaking in an interview said his administration is determined to end the country's Afcon trophy drought.

According to him, he will need the support of the entire nation to end the Afcon drought.

"My desire and the desire of every member of my administration and Ghanaians is to win the Africa Cup of Nations," he told Kumasi based Nhyira FM.

"As a nation, we'll do whatever possible, to win the trophy again," he added.

Ghana has, however, played in the 1992, 2010 and 2015 Afcon finals but failed to annex the ultimate.

The four times African champions will play Sudan in a doubleheader next month in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Ghana’s last participation at Afcon 2019 ended in a disappointing round of 16 exit at the hands of Tunisia.

The next Afcon is set to come off in Cameroon.
