End the 40-year drought-Prez to Black Stars
President Akufo-Addo had admonished the Black Stars of Ghana to win the 2021 edition of the African Cup of Nations, being held in Cameroon.
He has asked the team to put an end to the 40-year trophy drought.
The President in his message said: “Like with every edition of AFCON the Ghanaian people expect nothing short of ultimate glory from the stars.”
“The pressure to succeed is understandably high because of our status of four-time winners, and also because it has been 40 long years since we last lifted the trophy.”
“The target for you, naturally, is to bring the cup home. We have to go a step further than the second places recorded in 1992, 2010 and 2015, and bring the 40-year drought to an end,” the President noted.
The ongoing tournament will end February 6, 2022, in six venues in five cities of Cameroon.
