Beautifying Accra: AMA to partner GFA to erect monuments, paint murals of football heroes.

The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah, has welcomed a proposal from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to support the city’s beautification drive. 

This follows a call by the Mayor to corporate bodies and individuals to adopt, green and beautify open spaces in the city in line with the project dubbed #AccraforArt initiative which was launched in 2019. 

The idea which seeks to erect monuments and decorate public walls with colourful murals of football heroes both past and present was proposed by the President of the GFA, Kurt E.S. Okraku.

Mayor Sowah in welcoming the request said the idea forms part of the Accra for Art project an initiative to beautify the city to curb the indiscriminate posting of bills on public walls and to promote tourism adding that the assembly was in a hurry to set the ball rolling. 

He noted that the assembly was working with a team of graffiti experts.

He said sports was a golden opportunity to turn-around the economies of local communities and urged the GFA to take advantage of the introduction of astroturf in communities to bring back the vibrancy and excitement associated with local football since the proximity of sporting facilities in communities goes a long way to encourage and unearth talents. 

The GFA President, Kurt E.S. Okraku on his part said the AMA could use the association’s premier league platform among others to position its brand as well as embark on educational campaigns to help advance its cause.

Get ready to celebrate your favorite Ghanaian football stars.
