Accra, Feb. 4, GNA- Three Municipal Chief Executives (MCEs) in the Greater Accra Region have donated GHC10,000 to Accra Great Olympics following their 2-0 win over Hearts of Oak last Saturday in the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

Mr. Adjei Sowah called on the management to distribute the jerseys to the club’s ball boys, saying that, “ball boys all over the world become footballers and in a case where it happens here, they would first consider our club”.
