Member of Parliament for the Okere Constituency, Dan Kwaku Botwe has pledged massive support for Dreams Football Club as they prepare for their debut campaign in the Ghana Premier League.
The experienced legislature pledged the support of his entire constituency to Dreams FC when management members called upon him at his office at Parliament House in Accra on Wednesday.
Dreams Football Club will be playing its home matches at the Dawu Stadium which is part of the Okere Constituency represented by Honourable Dan Botwe.
Management of the club thus recognized the need to call on the MP to formally inform him of the club’s decision to play its home games at the Dawu Park and to invite him to the commissioning of the refurbished facility and the friendly match against Hearts of Oak on Sunday.
Hon. Botwe in expressing the honour bestowed on him with the courtesy call, revealed he was particularly excited one of the areas under his constituency is being brought back to life through football.
He also pledged the unwavering support of his constituents and the people of the Eastern Region as the club prepares itself for its maiden campaign in the Ghanaian top flight.
“I am very excited that you are going to have your base in my constituency and Dawu for that matter,” he said at the meeting.
“We all recall with nostalgia when we used to have Dawu Football Club and Dawu was all over the place and for that matter my home area was popularized.
“But now, for some years now, we’ve not had the privilege of watching football directly in my constituency.
“So I am very excited and all the people are also excited as through you, we are going to get the chance to watch live football matches involving all clubs in Ghana too.
“This is also now our team and I can assure you that Dawu, the constituency and for that matter, the whole Eastern Region will offer you all the support you need to succeed.”
Officials of Dreams Football Club will be joined by the chiefs and people of Dawu and other opinion leaders to commission the refurbished Dawu Stadium on Sunday, February 14, 2016 after which a high profile friendly against Hearts of Oak will be played.
