“You have my Blessing; you have the Blessing of the President, the Vice President and all of us. It’s exciting to qualify for the World Cup again We know we have qualified before but this time, especially, when people are down it is that time to bring out our best and let Ghanaians have a feel of the Black Stars.
“So, I am happy to bless you and to really pray for you that when you get onto the field the good Lord will be with Ghana and make sure that we score.
“We are good, I always watch us play, I know it’s easier talking when you are outside but the whole point is that I think our footballers deserve credit for what they do with the kind of dedication that your team has shown, I have a good feeling that this time we will go places.
“We are trying to raise funds to send some supporters to travel to Qatar to support the team as we need to have a critical number of people who will be responsible to cheer the team on to victory.”
“Also, be rest assured that we will do our best to provide you with the necessary resources and other technical needs to make sure that the team succeeds. We are good, we just need that little magic to break boundaries,” she added.
