Fire-brand Ghanaian Politican Hon.Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has retorted that he would have invested in the growth of Ghana Football provided former Ghana FA Vice President George Akwasi Afriyie was voted the Boss of GFA.
In 2019, the Presidential election to see a new Capo take over from Kwasi Nyantakyi after he decided to resign due to popular documentary piece dubbed ‘Number 12’ was held. The election was held under the watch of Normalization Committee led by Dr. Kofi Amoah.
Having supervised the election of the Executive Council, delegates elected Dreams FC Executive Chairman and former MTNFA Cup Committee Chairman, Kurt Edwin Simeone Okraku as new Ghana FA President.
Kurt Okraku is in his sixth month after assuming office. Getting slapped on the face with a pandemic which has halted all competitions including the Ghana Premier League, Women’s League, Division One and the MTNFA Cup.
There has being stakeholders meeting for the way forward on Ghana Football after Government had banned all football related activities in mid-match.Government has however extended the suspension to June 30, 2020 to decide the fate of football in the country.
According to the outspoken Ghanaian politician and businessman who represents Assin Central in Parliament(Member of Parliament) for the New Patriotic Party says, he would have invested a lot to ensure the domestic league gets attractive on the African Continent.
For almost 5-years, no Ghanaian club has reached the Money Zone in the African Inter-Club Competitions. Performing poorly on the continent and also having court cases after each season.
Among it all, lacks sponsorship for both the topflight and Division One as well as the National Women’s League.
Hon. Kennedy Agyapong says, since delegates failed to vote George Afriyie to power they should face their predicament.
“If George kwasi Afriyie is elected as GFA President I would have invest in Ghana football”So if delegates didn’t vote for him why would I invest in football”
“I won’t do that, No I will not invest”, Hon Kennedy Agyapong told Oman FM.
Kennedy was first elected to Parliament in 2000 and has since served on the ticket of Assin North.
