Coronavirus: Osei Palmer lauds GFA for offering Ghanaman Center to gov’t

President and bankroller for Tema Youth, Wilfred Osei Kwaku, popularly known in the media circles as “Osei Palmer’ has lauded the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for offering the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence, Prampram to be used as isolation centre in the fight against the Covid-19.

The GFA as part of its efforts to help government battle the Covid-19 pandemic offered out the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence.

A statement from the FA read, “Through our Medical Committee, we have gotten in touch with the authorities to make them aware that our facility at Prampram is available for use,” said General Secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo.

“The Centre of Excellence is spacious and we think, the facility can be of great help to government in this challenging times”.

Wilfred Osei Kwaku has lauded the idea by the GFA which will foster a good relationship between the Association and the government.

“It was a very good move by the GFA to give out the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence to government to be used as the isolation center”, he told Ohene-Bampoe Brenya on Happy 98.9FM’s virtual program to discuss the effects of Covid-19 on Ghanaian clubs.

“It’s also a way of their corporate social responsibility to the society”.

The Centre of Excellence, which was built in 2003 to accommodate national football teams, has space to house more than 1000 people.
