MAHAMA PAYS GLOWING TRIBUTE TO LATE FOOTBALL LEGEND, PELE

Former President John Dramani Mahama has paid a glowing tribute to the late Edson Arantes do Nascimento, aka Pele, who died on Thursday, December 29, 2022.

In a statement shared on Facebook, on Friday, December 30, 2022, Mahama said that Pele was an inspiration to many in the world.

He posted;

“Sad to hear the passing of Edson Arantes do Nascimento simply known to the world as Pele. My heart goes out to his family and indeed the entire football fraternity across the globe.

Brazil’s Pele, one of the greatest footballers that ever lived, beautified the game and iconised the No. 10 shirt.

He inspired many of us as children, some of whom grew up to become great footballers. He also was an icon for those of us who never got round to mastering the game. In the brief moments we had the ball at our feet we dreamed that we were like the great soccer maestro.

He was a respected global ambassador and symbol of courage, peace and hope for many, particularly the black race.

Rest in endless peace!”
