For a second term, Kurt Okraku has been chosen to lead the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
At the 2023 Elective Congress, which is now taking place at the Global Dream Hotel in Tamale, the capital of the Northern Regional, Mr. Okraku faced no opposition.
The Elections Committee of the nation’s football regulatory body dismissed George Afriyie, who was Mr. Okraku’s solitary opponent.
117 of the 119 delegates who attended the Congress cast votes in favor of the owner of Dreams FC.
However, two delegates abstained from voting, while one other delegate opposed his retention.
Kurt Okraku re-elected for a second term as GFA President.
Standing unopposed, the GFA Congress members voted:
YES – 117
Abstaining – 1
It’s a secret ballot, so how come the so-called delegates who would have voted for George didn’t simply vote no? I’m confused. pic.twitter.com/az02b64wvG
