In a video sighted by, a 62-year-old woman who did not give her name was seen in high spirits, clad in a funeral outfit, hinting at her state of mind for the protest.

"My heart is in Ghana football. And it hurts to see local teams like Hearts of Oak, Kotoko and Olympics go down the drain," the elderly woman cried out.

The woman decried the state of the Black Stars team and begged for all leaders who were not up and doing with their roles in building the team up to be dismissed.

Finally, she petitioned Nana Akufo-Addo to ensure that future GFA presidents are restricted from owning teams to prevent bias in player selection for the Black Stars, referencing the current GFA president's hand in Dreams FC.
