President of Division One side New Edubiase United, Abdul Salam Yakubu has defended government decision to suspend football in the country despite easing restrictions on some sporting activities.

According to him, government is doing it best to ensure football returns safe amid the pandemic.

Football has been suspended since  March this year as part of the measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus  with Ghana recording over 15,000.

“People should stop politicising our football. The government has done nothing wrong to our football. It’s rather protecting us from contracting the virus”, he told Ashiaman TV

“Many African countries have cancelled their leagues, even those leagues with better sponsorships have cancelled theirs, why putting unnecessary pressure on the government to bring football back?, he quizzed.

He added: “Our system is not good to play two matches in a week. We should stop the league and go to Congress. Some are even accusing the minister of not restarting the league.”

The Ghana Football Association will on Tuesday June 30 take a  decision on whether to truncate the season or continue.
