The GMA said “the government should reconsider its decision because of the health and security risks in hosting such a tournament could pose to Ghanaians”and warns Ghana Government on AFCON 2015 .
The association said “Ghanaians risked contracting the Ebola viral disease in view of the mass participation that such a tournament would attract”.
Why Ghana Medical Association warning Ghana Government?
Orignally Morocco was scheduled to host the tournament but has asked the Confederation of African Football to postpone this event and Ghana Medical Association warns Ghana Government, otherwise it will withdraw from hosting it because of health and security concerns.
Early this week, Mr Mohammed Ouzzine (Moroccan Sports Minister) was quoted as saying Morocco was considering what action to take if CAF refused to grant its request.
Yesterday,interview with the Daily Graphic in Kumasi , President of the GMA(Dr Kwabena Poku-Adusei) said “Ghana faced similar health and security risks which informed Morocco’s decision to withdraw”.
