Reverend Nii Amartey Adesah Chairman of the Ghana Amputee Football Association, has expressed his profound gratitude and that of the association to Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome Kwabenya Madam Adwoa Safo for her concern and good thoughts for amputee football and persons with disability (PWDs).
This reaction was in line with questions Madam Safo asked the Minister designate for Youth and Sports Mr. Isaac Asiamah during the vetting in Parliament regarding his plans for amputee football.
Rev. Adesah said her question means a lot to him because it clearly defined her love for PWDs and a heart of a mother for the underprivileged, her constituency and for Ghana.
Madam Safo had asked the Minister designate about his plans for amputee sports if he was approved as minister and this, to the leader of the disability sport means someone at least think about them.
“Very few people talk or think about lesser funded sports especially disability sports and for an MP to single the sport out for mention during the vetting session, the Association is very much elated and grateful,” Rev. Adesah added.
“There is hope for disability sports with honorable MPs like Adwoa Safo around and we give her our respect and urge her on to
continue with the good works,” he stated
Paralympics have over the years been neglected by sports authorities amid their call for help and he many achievements and efforts they make for the country.
Mr. Adesah was of the view that the concern of the MP was a ray of light for amputee sports in the future; hence he encouraged the association and the teams not to give up on their dreams and work harder.
He also pleaded with the new government to support them and not give the entire attention to the black stars as they have witness.
