The 2012 presidential candidate of the Progressive Peoples Party Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom had the shock of his life when football fans throwed stones at him at a football game over the weekend.
The businessman whose company GN Bank sponsors the Ghana Division One League, had gone to the stadium his company built for the people of Elmina to honour the game between Sharks and Dwarfs, and it took the swift intervention of the police to spare his life.
Dr Nduom on his Facebook page said during the match, fans broke through the perimeter fence and had to be chased away by the police.
Below are his frustrations on his Facebook wall:
Football Match - Sharks Versus Dwarfs - We deserve better than this!
Just came back from a football match and unfortunately, stone throwing, insults and intimidation marred the beauty of it.
It started before the match began. I greeted Sharks fans and walked over to greet Dwarfs fans. Dwarfs' fans greeted me with boos, insults and threw stones at me in the Stadium our Groupe Nduom company built in Elmina. During the match these fans broke through the perimeter fence and had to be chased away by the police. Some of them did the usual, tried to turn this into an NDC versus PPP affair. Why would a healthy competition turn this way? The GFA must discipline the league and the participants. Otherwise, why would anyone want to sponsor a team to play in the First Division League and why should I encourage GN Bank to continue to sponsor the league?
The match ended in a draw. But for the stones and chairs thrown and bad behavior, this would have been a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of good football played by two good teams. Thousands of people from and Elmina and Cape Coast deserve better than this.
