Sellas Tetteh who has been battling an undisclosed illness since last year, Monday 20 February received a cash donation of GHS50,000.00 from a delegation from the Ministry.
The delegation was led by the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Honorable Evans Opoku Bobie. He expressed his delight at seeing the former Black Satellites coach in good spirits.
Opoku Bobie revealed that the visit was to know the current health status of the coach who has been reported ill and also to make a cash donation of GHS50,000.00 on behalf of H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo in order for him to foot his medical bills.
He said the visit was necessary due to the immense role Sellas Tetteh has played as a coach in the development of Ghana football, adding that the visit will be the first of many more visits and was hopeful the coach’s health will improve.
Michael Lassey Teivi who is a brother of Sellas Tetteh who spoke on his behalf thanked President Akufo Addo for his kind gesture and pledged to put the donation to good use.
