The People’s National Convention is in turmoil.  This follows the appointment and acceptance of an ambassadorial role for Dr. Edward Nasigri Mahama, who was the president candidate of the party in the December 2016 elections.

The party’s hierarchy has distanced itself from Dr.  Mahama amidst allegations he failed to inform the executive about the appointment and that no discussions on the issue had taken place.

Dr. Edward Mahama, former presidential, candidate of the PNC.

It is evident that if Dr. Mahama goes ahead to take the post, he would be ostracised from the party. Though the PNC has no seat in parliament, it is highly regarded in the political arena.

Dr. Mahama to be president of Ghana on four different occasions and on each occasion, he performed woefully, yet was never deterred. The impression I get is that he is besotted with power and in that case if he can’t get the presidency, then an Ambassador would do very well. At least, he would get top represent the president!

That the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is in the news again for all the wrong reasons, is nothing g new.  For quite some time now, almost all issues of the GFA that has come into the public domain, have been for the wrong reasons. Nobody the issue of co-efficient and the debacle in Brazil in 2014.

This time round, the issue at stake is a feud between the FA president, Kwasi Nyantakyi and his deputy George Afriyie.

Speculation has it that the two are at war and that Nyantakyi has threatened to sack his deputy.

Rumours has been rife that all was not well with the FA following the latest round of friendly marches honoured by the Black Stars. It is even understood that Mr. Afriyie who is the chairman of the Black Stars management committee was not aware of the arrangement of the two matches the Stars played against Mexico and the USA.

We await to see whether Mr. Nyantakyi would carry out the threat to dismiss Mr.  Afriyie and what the repercussions would be especially for Ghana football.

Still on a footballing note, the Ghanaian football fraternity has been thrown into a state of mourning following the fatal motor accident involving Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

Kotoko were returning to Kumasi after honouring a premier league match in Tema against Inter Allies. The bus conveying the team was involved in an accident on the Nkawkaw road claiming the life of one person and others receiving various degrees of injuries.

My commiserations go to the Board, Management, the technical team, playing body and the teeming fans. Our prayers are with them.
