In a bold declaration of Ghana’s potential on the global stage, Alan Kyerematen, founder, and leader of the Movement for Change, has voiced his confidence in the nation’s ability to triumph in the World Cup. This ambitious vision, he asserts, hinges on a fundamental transformation of the sports landscape—a commitment he vows to prioritize if elected as president in the upcoming 2024 elections.
Having recently parted ways with the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kyerematen emphasizes the urgent need for substantial governance changes, extending his call for reform to the realm of sports. Speaking on Kumasi-based Akoma FM, he reiterated the necessity for a significant shift in governance, stating, “When the great transformation begins in sports, believe me, Ghana can win the World Cup.”
The optimism for Ghana’s football future comes at a crucial juncture following the disappointing exit of the national team from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) at the group stage.
