LISTEN SEP 6, 2019

Western Regional Football Association Chairman, Kojo Yankah says support the candidate with a good manifesto in the upcoming Ghana FA presidential elections.

On Thursday, September 5, an Extra-Ordinary Congress was held at the College of Physicians and Surgeons Centre in Accra to adopt the new statutes.

Despite rumours flying that delegates will throw out the proposed statutes, Congress unanimously adopted the new statutes.

155 members present voted to unanimously adopt the revised Statutes.

Mr Yankah, who has vowed to not run for another term in Western Region, wants to support the candidate with the best manifesto.

"I will consider the one who presents a reasonable manifesto," he told Kumasi based Sikka FM.

"All the aspirants are capable and the one that will help develop Ghana Football is who we should go for," he added.

George Afriyie, Kurk Okraku, Fred Pappoe, Osei Kweku Palmer and Nana Yaw Amponsah have openly declared their interest in occupying the country's football governing high seat.

Reports in the media suggest that other football administrators are yet to join the race for the seat.

The adoption of the revised statutes paves the way for elections to be conducted to elect a new president for the Association, as well as a new board.

Meanwhile Congress also unanimously adopted the Normalization Committee’s proposed regulations for the upcoming elections of the GFA.
