President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Dr Patrice Motsepe arrived in Ghana on Wednesday morning for a two-day visit.
He was welcomed by Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kurt Okraku.
The South African businessman who took over the reins of CAF from Ahmad Ahmad in March this year will attend a number of programmes during his stay.
He will meet President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo at a dinner event in Accra Wednesday evening to brainstorm on how to transform the African Youth and policies and programmes for the development of African Football.
The GFA will later organize a breakfast meeting for him at the Kempinski Hotel in Accra. In attendance will be Sports Minister, football stakeholders, GFA Executive Council members, past and present football administrators and the media.
Dr Patrice Motsepe will round up his visit with a donation at the Dworwulu Special School before a brief session with Hon Mustapha Ussif on Thursday evening.
This is Dr Patrice Motsepe’s first visit to Ghana since he was elected into office as President of CAF in March 2021.
