Ghana Olympic committee President Ben Nunoo Mensah has wade into the discussion of restarting Ghana premier league or not amid Coronavirus pandemic

The GPL has been on suspension since March after Presidential decree to put a hold on all sporting activities in bid to curve the spreed of the deadly virus

“The cost in testing every player or athlete for COVID-19  in Ghana is calculated to be around $120 per person. I think is not safe to start football.”- Nunoo Mensah told Silver fm.
