“Ayekoo! Congratulations to the National Amputee Football Team on their historic win at the African Amputee Football Cup of Nations—AAFCON 2024.

“Such determination and hard work to defend the championship title in Egypt! Your remarkable victory has brought glory to the team and filled the heart of Ghanaians with immense pride,” former President wrote in a Facebook post.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag bearer indicated that he is committed improving lesser-known sports in the country like the amputee football team.

“Amid our profound excitement, it is deeply troubling that our national athletes are not receiving the support and recognition they deserve.

“I am committed to ensuring that all sports, including lesser-known ones like amputee football, receive the support and development they need,” Mr. Mahama stated.

He continued: “Our talented and hardworking athletes deserve more attention and support and should not have to fight for recognition and payment that is rightfully theirs. It is time for a change. I am determined to lead the change.

“Once again, congratulations to ‘The Black Challenge’ and all our national athletes who continue to make Ghana proud.

“Together, let’s work towards a future where every athlete is valued and celebrated.”
