Owner and bankroller of King Faisal Football Club and a member of the Black Stars Management Committee, Alhaji Karim Gruzah, has expressed his support for the New Patriotic Party’s “Breaking the 8” in the 2024 general election.
‘Breaking the 8’ slogan symbolizes the governing NPP’s aspiration to secure a third consecutive term in power and break the cycle of NPP and NDC winning power for only two consecutive four-year-term.
Exchanging pleasantries with Kwami Sefa Kayi, the host of the Kokrokoo show on Peace FM yesterday on his 80th birthday, Alhaji Gruzah conveyed his hope that God would assist the NPP in achieving their goal of “Breaking the 8”.
“Inn Shaa Allah (If God Permits), I want NPP to break the 8,” the ace football administrator prayed in local dialect, Twi.
Mr. Sefa Kayi had phoned Alhaji Gruzah to extend birthday wishes to the man who has managed football for over 50 years.
The Ghanaian football icon Alhaji Gruzah celebrated this 80th birthday and vowed to continue speaking truth, particularly on football matters in the country.
He has in the past disclosed that his appointment to the Black Stars Management Committee was facilitated by the government, not the GFA.
A distinguished figure in Ghanaian football renowned for his candid commentary and talent-spotting prowess, the football administrator also vowed to take a more measured approach when delivering assessments in the future.
He emphasized his unwavering commitment to speaking the unembellished truth, attributing his enduring vitality to the blessings of God.
