Speaking to Accra based Bryt FM days ago, Black Meteors left-back Edward Sarpong has stated how Ghanaians in Portugal are struggling at the moment and is pleading with President Akufo-Addo to come to their rescue.
According to the Portimonense defender, the extension of the closure of borders has really affected Ghanaians in Portugal using himself as a yardstick, stating they are always indoors at this moment due to the nationwide lockdown that is been observed there. With this they struggle to get money to buy food and also cater for their rent.
The former Unistar Academy boy added by indicating lots of things are going very bad with most Ghanaians stranded and struggling in the European nation. In spite of this, he’s pleading with the President to lift the ban on the closure of borders so they can come home and return when the COVID-19 gets kicked out. He said;
“In fact, the move to close borders until ending of this month is not easy because we are struggling here. Many Ghanaians here are complaining bitterly about it because they find it difficult to pay for their apartment and food. So I will say the extension has affected us a lot especially me.
“I will plead with the president to open the boarders for us despite announcing an extension because we are suffering. I pray God touches his heart so he can lift the ban so we can come back home. A lot of things are going bad in Portugal and so, we will plead with him to consider those of us who are outside Ghana.”
Edward Sarpong 22, was an integral member of the Black Meteors team that finished fourth in the Africa U-23 Championship which was staged in Egypt in November last year. He’s with Portuguese second tier side Farense on loan from his mother club Portimonense.
