Coronavirus: Black Stars Players Must Come To The Aid Of Government - Hon. Alex Agyekum
Hon. Alex Agyekum, Chairman for Parliamentary Select Committee on Sports, Youth and Culture has implored Black Stars players to join the nation's fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Ghana has so far recorded 641 Covid-19 cases, killing eight.
The likes of Andre Ayew, Asamoah Gyan, Kwadwo Asamoah and CK Akonnor have all contributed to fight the spread of the virus.
Despite the help, Hon. Agyekum wants more of the players to join hands to help curb the situation.
“The players must donate to the Covid-19 fund introduced by the government," Agyekum told Peace FM.
"We know some of them have done their best but I think the national team must rise to the occasion.
“We are waiting for them, maybe they are preparing themselves for the better. They should try and come on board.
"Captains of the various national teams must mobilise them because this is the time to show the government some love.
“The foreign-based players should try and do something because this is the time we need them.”
Globally, over 2,119,300 persons have been infected by the coronavirus while 141,945 persons have passed away.
