Nii Oyanka, Chief of Oblieman-Opah and Acting Paramount Chief of Abola Piam We of the Ga State has called for the total overhaul of the Ghana Black stars Management Team ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations Afcon 2019.
The Chief of Oblieman who also Doubles as CivTek International Advisor for Ghana and Africa has described the early signs of riff between Asamoah Gyan and coach Kwesi Appiah over Captaincy issue as premature adding that ‘’decision to strip off Captaincy from Asamoah off his position when he has not even selected the final Afcon squad indicates that they are never going to play as a team and win the Afcon.
For him, the poor taxpayers’ monies would be wasted in catering for the National Team and called on government to concentrate on improving on the living condition of the people who are starving and dying of hunger and hardship in the country instead of financing the team.
Nii Oyanka , Who also is known in private life as Bezaleel Quartey Zola was a former footballer who played for Charity FC AND U.C United respectively before taking to Europe for trial in Swedish Umea FC, the club late Shamo Quarye played and Malta respectively.
Nii Oyanka stressed the need for every player to pride him/herself to represent the country on a huge stage like Afcon, ‘’it’s a dream of every footballer and not to even talk about been a captain for the Ghana blacks stars to play for the national team, he added.
He stated further that ‘’the pride and honor is what has been always causing captaincy problems in the blacks star team for some decades now’’.
The footballer turned traditional ruler reminisce what happened to him between 2009 to 2012, where he was very close to becoming a professional footballer and accomplishing his goal to represent Ghana at highest stage, but the Ghana Football Authority GFA with its incompetent management didn’t help and finally had to follow traditional calls to become a Chief at age 25, Probably the youngest Chief in the country at the moment.
Nii Zola said he was invited by Umea Fc Club in Sweden at age 18 for professional trials but revealed that though G FA refused to give him the necessary recognition to go for the trails, he fought his way all the way to Sweden for the trail.
‘’Many talents are been wasted and are going through same fate because the football governing body is corrupt and needed a total overhauling, the best players in the world are either working in factories, farmers, street hustlers or track pushers in our country Ghana because they never get the opportunity to showcase their talent, he stated.
Nii has called on the football Governing body and Government to rather use the money which will be spent on Afcon to rebuild the Youth system and bring back the Joy of watching Under12. 14, and 17 soccer onces more Because that where Talents are.
