Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo paid a surprise visit to the Black Stars during their training session on Saturday.
The Black Stars are training ahead of their AFCON qualifier with the Walia ibex in what is expected to be a keenly contested battle on Sunday afternoon in Addis Ababa.
Nana Addo has charged Kwesi Appiah’s men to repeat their 5-0 first-leg win over the East African side and says he wants to see the team lift the 2019 AFCON in Cameroon.
“I am here on an AU assignment but thought it wise to come inspire you ahead of this game. I know you defeated Ethiopia 5-0 at home, it is time to do it again. It’s been a long time since Ghana won the AFCON so clear this hurdle and go for the ultimate,” He said during his interaction with the players and the technical team.
The President was captured on camera interacting with captain Asamoah Gyan and his deputy Andre Ayew during his visit.
