The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt E. S. Okraku begins a 4-day tour of the Bono, Ahafo and Northern regions to meet selected clubs from Zone one of the National Division One League today.
The exercise has become necessary following recent spate of violence recorded at certain Division One League match venues in the aforementioned zone.
The Zone 1 of the ongoing division one league season has been identified as a hot spot after recent incidents where fans of some clubs have resorted to assaulting referees and match officials if results don’t go their way.
The happenings have not just been disturbing but a major step backwards for the Ghana FA in their efforts to restore the dignity and lost glory of football in the country.
As concerned as he is, the GFA President is leading a 10-member committee to visit some clubs in Zone 1 in a bid to find a way out from the current situation.
