Ebolas: GFA Directs Sierra Leone To Government

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has said, it has directed the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) to seek clearance from the government of Ghana before granting their request to honour their home matches in Accra due to Ebola outbreak in the West African country.

A statement from the GFA said, it has asked the SLFA to ask their government to make a formal request to the government of Ghana for consideration by the Ministry of Health.

It said “it is based on this report from Ghana’s Ministry of Health that a decision will be taken.

“While the GFA is keen on helping out our brothers from Sierra Leone, we are uncertain about the health implications for our country”.

The Sierra Leoneans are seeking to play their home qualifying matches in Accra for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations due to the Ebola outbreak in their country.
