The Volta Regional Football Association media committee has held a public gathering to showcase the achievements and pay tribute to the departed soul of Jordan Anagblah, Vice President of the Ghana Football Association. The late GFA Veep, who hailed from Dzodze Kave in the Volta Region, has contributed greatly to the region and the country as a whole in football development. The 55-year-old died on June 14 at the SSNIT Hospital in Accra after surrendering to illness.
The public gathering brought over 450 sympathizers as they listen and share their memories of Jordan Anagblah. The Regional FA media committee chairman Theophilus Zottorgloh addressed the gathering saying the late football administrator was a hero in the region as he led Ghana's Under-20 soccer team to Africa's first gold medal at the FIFA World Youth Tournament in Egypt 2009 and the African Youth Tournament the same year in Rwanda. Before his untimely departure, he was the Chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Football Association.
He once played for Welfare Stars with George Vorsah, an elder brother of the Black Star defender Isaac Vorsah, at Madina-Accra, where he grew up. In the Volta region,Jordan formed Desert Warriors Football Club in his home town Dzodze where a lot of regional talents were developed. He single handedly qualified Desert Warriors to the National Division One League two times before eventually selling the club. Isaac vorsah, John Painsil and Daniel Opare were among some of the notable players he developed from the region. He was a very intelligent person, a great and deep thinker and a philosopher as well. Jordan`s generosity dates back as he always gives to the needy in the society. He in his small ways donates footballs, jerseys and bibs to clubs in the region as a sign of gesture and homage to the region.
He has passion for what he does and never looks back until he succeeds. His dedication to duty was phenomenal as he travelled with his world cup winning team to every single game. He had a big impact on Volta Regional Football when he came into football administration as he partners the current Regional Football chairman Francis Dogbatse to administer football in the region and also serve on many of the committees. When Jordan was elected the Vice President of the GFA, he promised in an interview with GBC/VOLTA STAR RADIO he will continue to support sportsmen in the region to National prominence before his sudden departure. He brought remarkable experience to the GFA after many years of work. As a member of the Executive Committee, he has worked very closely with the young football administrators and served as inspiration to them.
Anagblah's enthusiasm for the game and energy were the foundation of immeasurable successes that Ghana football has chalked in recent years. Mr zottorglo ended by saying; his success at the National team level goes a long way to attest the fact that, the late Jordan Anagblah is an irreplaceable person in Ghana Football Association.
The sympathizers also shared their memories of Jordan where his achievement at the FIFA World Youth Tournament in Egypt was mainly remembered by all. It never came as a surprise to the many as the country decided to give him a state burial considering the numerous achievements he has made. Truly, Ghana and the football fraternity have lost an asset and a big vacuum has been created they concluded. Jordan Anagblah will be buried this Saturday 14th July 2012. The Volta RFA media committee on behalf of the Association sends its fair well message to the family and friends of Jordan Anagblah.
MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE.
