GFA President Kurt Okraku calls for unity, urges football people to reject people tarnishing the brand

2 min read

Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kurt Okraku has called on all stakeholders of the game to rally behind the current administration to help develop football in the West African country.

Addressing delegates at the 26th Ghana Football Association Ordinary Congress at the Ghanaian Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram, the GFA boss urged the football fraternity to build a united front and reject individuals who tarnish the brand of the association.

He advised football people to desist from destroying the image of the FA’s product with negative submissions.

“I must say that it is football that brings all of us together as a country,” he said at Congress.

“Let’s come together and build our football. This is the sport that has made me who I am today. This is the sport that brings the country together.

“Despite the hard work done by the GFA, a few of us do not think about this family; there are a few of us, who perhaps only think about their personal interest; there are still a few of us who do not think about the total good of our football,” an emotional Okraku noted.

“There are a few of us who continuously go out of this family and go out to the public space to malign your product, my product, your business. We must reject these people,” he admonished.

“If I go to corporate Ghana on daily basis preaching Ghana football and yet some of us, just a few of us, continuously damage the image of the product we intend to love, that we spend our money on, we need to reject these people; we must say no to such people.

“Again, football is the only sport that brings all of us together. Football cuts across all religions, all political divides.

“There’s only one football family; there cannot be two, we must always have one.

“We will disagree on issues, we will disagree on how I should work, but let’s think Ghana football first,” he added.
