All aspirants filed their nomination today at the premises of the country's football governing body.

"As I stand here, I have contested all the three past GFA elections," he told the press after filing his nomination.

"I understand the dynamics very well. It is possible someone may change his mind but that is elections.

"I am not saying I will get all Congressmen to vote on my behalf but I am calling on my colleagues to begin to concede defeat and join to change Ghana football," he added.

According to reports, 10 Premier League and 20 Division One Clubs have massively endorsed the Okyeman Planners financier to become the next Ghana FA president.
