'I Was Fed Up With Kwesi Nyantakyi's Administration' - Fred Pappoe On Why Left His Veep Role In 2015
Accra Great Olympics director, Fred Pappoe has disclosed why he left his role as the vice president of the Ghana Football Association in 2015.
Mr Pappoe was a pillar during Mr Nyantakyi's era and played a key part in Ghana's qualification to the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cup's.
However, reports have emerged that he left his role after falling out with Kwesi Nyantakyi but Mr Pappoe has denied the falling out, he has opened the Pandora’s box on his reasons for cutting ties with the Association and he did so in an interview with Accra-based Atinka FM on Wednesday.
According to the Ghana FA presidential aspirant, his reasons for leaving point to the fact that he noticed certain major flaws with Nyantakyi’s administration and he did not wish to be part of a system that was defective.
“I left the Executive council in 2015, I decided not to have anything to do with Nyantakyi Administration because I was fed up with the system.
"I did not contest Mr Nyantakyi for the GFA Presidential position at that time because I knew it was just a matter of time before that administration crashed.”
Pappoe has been campaigning in the last few weeks and he has been seeking the buy-in of delegates who will vote in the GFA elections on October 25.
He will face competition from George Afriyie, George Ankomah Mensah, Amanda Clinton, Kurt Okraku and Nana Yaw Amponsah for the chance to become Nyantakyi’s replacement as the boss of Ghana football.
