You Can't Use Football To Distract Us from The Real Issues - Felicity

A journalist and a Creative Designer, Felicity Nelson has expressed her opinion saying that football cannot be used to distract Ghanaians from the real issues affecting them.

Felicity who was a panelist on GOOD MORNING GHANA on Metro TV today expressed this opinion when she was asked why are Ghanaians not euphoric about the Black Satellite winning of the U-20 football tournament in Mauritania.

"Do we have to be euphoric or excited about the Satellite's winning when people have problems with bread and butter?

We have real issues that we are dealing with and you can't use football or any other thing to distract us from the real issues that Ghanaians are going through.

I am not saying football is a bad thing but right now the average Ghanaian cannot afford to be distracted because they are hungry. So, when you tell them; Black Satellite won and they are like oh that's nice but what am I going to eat today?

Until we start dealing with the basic fundamental things, people don't have the energy because aside the bread and butter thing, there alot of things happening around football in Ghana which have made the people lost interest." - she said
