They were a powerhouse in Ghana Premier League football but years after being relegated to the Division One League, they have struggled to bounce back to represent the Northern Region of Ghana as they previously did.
It’s against this backdrop that, Vice President of the Republic, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has urged the leadership of Real Tamale United (RTU) to work hard to restore the ‘Pride of the North’ to where it truly belongs in Ghana football.
Dr. Bawumia made the call on Thursday when the Board of Directors and Management of RTU met him at the Jubilee House, Accra, to discuss matters relating to the once fearsome club.
The Vice President admonished RTU’s leadership to “put in place the rightful measures to redeem the glorious past of the club” a source at the Vice President’s office told FootballMadeInGhana.com.
Dr. Bawumia has been supporting RTU financially. Late last year, he donated GH₵50,000 to the club.
