Ghana were hoping to end 40-year long trophy drought but were booted out of the competition in the group phase after picking just one point in  three games in group C.

The four-time African Champions opened their campaign with a defeat to Morocco before drawing with Gabon in the second game.

Their campaign moved from bad to worse when they suffered a humiliating 3-2 defeat to tournament debutant Comoros in the final Group C game on Tuesday night.

Following the shambolic and abysmal performance of the team, several Ghanaians have called on Mr Okraku to resign from his position.

But the former MTN FA Cup chairman insisted it is not a topic that should be discussed insisting it is about time “we stick together as a country and fix the mess.”

“I don’t think it is a topic that we should discuss,” he told Asempa FM on the Ultimate Sports Show.

“In 2006, we exited at the group phase and we never called for the heads of the people in charge.

“We have played in two finals and after failing to win the trophy nobody called for the exit of people.

“I know people are angry by the performance of the team but I don’t think asking me to resign is the right thing but we have to stick together and fix the situation,” he added.
