Netizens to Newcastle fans planning to build school in memory of Atsu told not to use Ghanaian contractors
Meanwhile, in order to finish the project started by the late winger Christian Atsu which sought to build a new school in Ghana, Newcastle fans have started a fundraising campaign in his honour.
Atsu was assisting in the ongoing construction of the new school as a representative of the charitable organisation, Arms Around the Child.
Instead of hiring a Ghanaian for the project, some Ghanaians have recommended that the group enter the country and complete the school themselves.
