Former Aduana Stars defender Stephen Anokye Badu stranded in Kuwait

The former Aduana Stars centre-back has called on the Government of Ghana to come to his rescue in the Middle East.
 
 
Ghanaian defender Stephen Anokye Badu is currently stranded in Kuwait after his contract with Tadamon SC was terminated last month.
 
Anokye Badu left the shores of Ghana to continue his career in the Asian country after his contract with Dormaa-based club had expired in January 2019.
 
The former Ghana U20 star revealed that he is struggling for survival in Kuwait after his ten-month contract was abrogated by his club.
 
His plans of returning to Ghana has been fruitless following the Government of Ghana restrictions on travels due to the Coronavirus pandemic
 
"Personally, due to the biting effects of the lockdown in that country, I have made an effort by calling Ghana's Ambassador in that country and have held discussions with him over the matter. He asked me to contact a woman who works at the Airport for assistance," Anokye told Ghana News Agency
 
"When I called, the person told me unless they get a total of 150 Ghanaians who want to return, they will not get a plane for us. She didn't get the 150 people she needed so we are still locked up," he stated.
 
The former Aduana Star's player indicated that following the expiration and termination of his 10 - month contract with his Tadamon Sporting Club last month, officials of the Club withdrew all contract obligations including payment of rent charges.
 
"They paid my apartment rent charges up to last month when my contract ended and have made it clear to me that they won't continue with the payment. I should take that burden up for myself. But the situation is very difficult for me here. We are locked down, and i don't do any work to earn extra money to pay rent charges.
 
"I just want to return home," he stated.
 
I can't survive with the little money on me now that my contract has ended. And we don't know when exactly restrictions will be lifted too," he remarked.
 
He expressed grave concern about the way the Ghana Embassy in Kuwait had handled the issue and appealed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to act quickly and respond to their distress call, adding that things were getting worse by the day.
 
On his future plans, he said he would be willing to play outside Ghana if the COVID 19 situation normalises but ready to join the local league as well.
