Akufo-Addo meets entire Black Stars team

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is scheduled to meet the Black Stars players and their technical handlers at the Banquet Hall of the Jubilee House Thursday night.

The meeting comes ahead of the team’s training tour to Dubai.

The Stars are preparing for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to be held in Egypt from Friday, June 21.

The announcement by the president did not state the reason for the meeting but it is certain it will border on the team’s preparations for the tournament.

Officials of the Normalisation Committee will also be in attendance.

On Tuesday, May 28, President Akufo-Addo phoned General Captain Asamoah Gyan to persuade him to rescind an earlier decision to retire from the national team as a result of a captaincy row.

That was after he met Coach James Kwesi Appiah at the Jubilee House.

The two – coach and his player – have since ironed out their differences as they met on Wednesday.

Ghana is in Group F with Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.
