Some time ago ex-international Anthony Baffoe approached Abu to become a board member of PFAG, the Professional Footballers Association Ghana. Abu appreciated the invitation and took part in the meeting last Saturday in the Lizzy Csports Complex in East Legon, joining Stephen Appiah and Michael Essien among others.

PFAG’s goal is threefold: protecting the interests of players, to promote football and its fundamental skills and offering guidance and counseling. Programs on the agenda are educative clinics, coaching programs for the development of the game and judicial advice, amongst others. PFAG is currently holding a candidate membership status with FIFpro, the World Players Association.

Chairman Baffoe introduced Abu to the other members where after Abu gave a short introduction of himself and the TUFA project. Abdulai also stand on behalf of the Northern region and asked in his speech to the board and also directly to Micheal Essein of arranging a peace game in Accra instead of Tamale. He mentioned, Northern region didn’t have peace for years now, and this are good times when stars like Micheal and co to initiate programs like this in the sector to ensure peace and unity among the people.Abdulai was asked to write a request for such a game so it can be arranged.

Later this week Abu and Anthony will meet to further discuss the Peace Game and the collaboration between TUFA and PFAG. Opportunities for cooperation lie particulary in promoting PFAG, informative education on human trafficking and the development of local competition.
