GFA Presidential Hopeful Amanda Clinton Denies Praising Kwesi Nyantakyi

Ghana Football Association (GFA) presidential hopeful, Lawyer Amanda Clinton has through a press statement denied reports in the media suggesting that she has commended Lawyer Kwesi Nyantakyi for doing a phenomenal job during his reign at the association.

According to the founder of Clinton Consultancy, she has been totally misquoted because that was not what she sought to put out there.

“It had been brought to my attention that it is been circulated that I said that the former President of the G.F.A did a phenomenal job.

“I wish to offer the football fans who were deeply traumatized and hurt from the Anas Video clarification on the news story that is circulating about me regarding my supposed comments on praising the former President of the G.F.A.

“I would like to categorically state that my comments have been mis-interpreted.

“I was addressing the issue of how grassroots mobilisation is important to any campaign for presidency and that he did a phenomenal job at mobilising grassroots support and networking throughout the country HOWEVER fraternity is not enough", Lawyer Amanda Clinton explained.

She will likely go head to head with top football administrators George Afriyie, Kurt Okraku, Fred Pappoe, Osei Kwaku Palmer, Nana Yaw Amponsah, and Lawyer George Amoako if they all pass the vetting and integrity test.

It had been brought to my attention that it is been circulated that I said that the former President of the G.F.A did a phenomenal job.

I wish to offer the football fans who were deeply traumatized and hurt from the Anas Video clarification on the news story that is circulating about me regarding my supposed comments on praising the former President of the G.F.A.

I would like to categorically state that my comments have been mis-interpreted.

I was addressing the issue of how grassroots mobilisation is important to any campaign for presidency and that he did a phenomenal job at mobilising grassroots support and networking throughout the country HOWEVER fraternity is not enough.

2019 is a time for transition, accountability, zero tolerance for bad corporate practices and reliance on new fundraising channels as well as a new face and brand. I also said I would take the G.F.A to the next level if selected by taking it into the 21st century when it comes to

1) Corporate fundraising
2) Turning around the fortunes of our football where it bleeds the most- local football leagues

3) Changing the culture of the organization with a servant-leadership model

4) Introducing transformative signature programmes
5) Engaging with F.I.FA at a senior level
6) Ensuring the G.F.A becomes the beacon of Africa in terms of football administration

I ask that the press works with me to share my message and vision as I work towards become the next President of the G.F.A and do so in a way that has never been done before in our history.
