Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), has lauded the senior national team, the Black Stars for winning Silver medal at the just-ended Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

In a statement, Nana Addo said, “This is to congratulate the senior national football team, the Black Stars, for their impressive display in the just-ended Africa Cup of Nations, where they emerged as silver medallists.”

He said “Despite being written off by football pundits prior to the commencement of the tournament and coupled with the difficult beginning they had in their first group game against Senegal, they rallied together, showed character and determination, and gave a good account of themselves right down to the last kick of the tournament. The nation is proud of them.”

“We all hoped they were going to bring back the cup after we last tasted victory some 33 years ago, but it was not to be. I am, however, confident of future of the Black Stars, who can look forward to years of unparalleled success.

“We have a solid base of good players who will emerge victorious in the next AFCON tournament in 2017, and make Ghana proud in future continental and global competitions,” he stated.

Ghana lost 9-8 on penalties to Ivory Coast after 120 minutes of soccer action.
