A private legal practitioner, Amanda Clinton has hailed former president of the GFA Kwesi Nyantakyi for his contribution to grassroots football mobilization and international exposure.
The former Wa All Stars owner contributed immensely to the development of Ghana football.
Mr Nyantakyi was the first president to qualify for the country for its maiden World Cup in 2006.
Since then, the country have played in the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup but failed to play in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Speaking to Accra based Happy FM, the Ghana FA presidential hopeful said, “Nyantakyi did a phenomenal work from the grassroots football to the premier league clubs; he gave the country exposure at CAF and international level and did a great work for grassroots mobilization but it’s time for new face to lead the Ghana FA and I’m the obvious choice.
"I’m interested not in only rebranding the GFA but also taking it to the next level. My agenda for the GFA is to listen and to implement, as well as be the neutral voice. I will be a mediator between the old and the new in the GFA structure. A mediator that everybody can come to in order to voice their concern and views and I would make informed decisions on those views,” she added.
Madam Amanda was not perturbed about assertions by some people who render her unqualified for the position but stated that she had fulfilled all requirements to contest for the presidency.
Clinton will battle it out with football personalities including George Afriyie, Kurt E.S Okraku, Nana Yaw Amponsah, Fred Pappoe, Osei Kweku Palmer and George Ankamah for the vacant position.
