“Three hundred pages of history jumps at you when you get The Complete History of Ghana Football League: 1958-2012. The book has come not a bit too early, as younger generations have continually grappled with appreciating the factual details of the struggles and joys of the national sport. From the heady days of post-independence to the turbulent times of Ghana’s first coup in 1966, local football leagues have been a silent witness to the country’s life. Having worked for the state-owned Daily Graphic for several years, as well venturing in and out of freelancing cumulatively for decades, Bediako is in a unique position, as an authority, to put his thoughts together on the subject.” — Gary Al-Smith, Sports Journalist
“Ken Bediako’s book is a concise, yet comprehensive compilation of the body of knowledge that’s been left unkempt by all of us.” — Fritz Baffour, former Minister of Information/MP
“It is also a form of written proof that something was done or said. Documentation gives the ability to have another account of a situation and helps us have something to fall back on other than the word of one individual.” —Nana Sam Brew Butler, former Ghana Football Association Chairman
