Bechem United defender, Seth Sowah, says the lack of football activities in the country could affect careers if swift measures are not put in place to solve the ongoing impasse between government and the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Sowah, who joined Bechem ahead of the start of the campaign, noted that he was relishing a return of the Premier League as soon as possible as he looked to continue with his impressive first round performance.

His hope seems to be turning into despair as there is no clear way of football returning soon with goverment’s resolve to dissolve the current Ghana Football Association (GFA) following the expose from investigative journalist, Anas Amereyaw Anas.

Following the expose, which captured some lead officials in the GFA, receiving money as cash rewards in turn for a favour.
Subsequently, goverment moved with plans to dissolve the association, first going to court to seek an injuction on all football activities as well as closing the FA Secretariat.

And in an interview with the Graphic Sports, the former Danbort player said the current situation with football in the country was worrying and called for swift measures to allow the second round of the league return quickly.

"The lack of football in the country is really affecting us and I want government and GFA to find a quick resolution to the impasse in order to allow us play our game.

"This if not taken serious can affect our careers and I am hoping the Premier League comes back sooner so we can continue with the second round," he said.

Bechem ended the first round of the league on 10th place with 19 points in 15 games and will be looking forward to making a significant impact in the second round.
