GFA General Secretary apologises; claims Saddick Adams was blocked mistakenly on Twitter

Published on: 07 February 2024

Prosper Harrison Addo, the General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), has issued an apology to sports journalist Saddick Adams following the GFA's action towards the renowned broadcaster on social media.

Addo responded to the controversy surrounding the GFA's official social media Twitter, which had blocked Adams from accessing its content on the platform.

"This was an error and was corrected immediately it came to our attention. Apologies for the mishap," Addo posted on the platform.

Adams had shared a notification indicating that he had been blocked from accessing the GFA's page on social media. His publicizing of the incident coincides with his preparation to lead a demonstration on February 14, protesting the poor state of football in Ghana.

The demonstration follows Ghana's disappointing performance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cote D’Ivoire, where the Black Stars were eliminated from the tournament in the first round without securing a single victory.

The "Save Ghana Football Demonstration" has garnered the involvement of veteran sports journalists, including Veronica Commey and Patrick Osei Agyemang.

Like Commey, Adams has been vocal about the mismanagement of Ghana's most popular sport, particularly in light of the Black Stars' early exit from the AFCON, which has intensified calls for reform within the football administration.
