The Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has cautioned Kurt Okraku, the newly elected Ghana Football Association (GFA) president to be careful about his choice of a vice president.
Per the new statutes of the Ghana FA, the vice president will be chosen from the Executive Council board to assist the president to carry out his duties.
Speaking on JoyNews’ news analysis programme, Newsfile, Saturday, Mr Baako said, Mr Simeon-Okraku has to, “take his time, do some consultations and make sure the right person is put there”.
According to the veteran journalist, the GFA president appointing someone who courts controversy will be detrimental to his tenure of office.
“Somebody who attracts controversy immediately [is a person] he should not go for. The person may be good, maybe efficient and everything, but if he breeds controversy, he doesn’t need that for starters.”
Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku was elected GFA president after his closest rival George Afriyie conceded defeat before the third round of voting at Friday’s Elective Congress held at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Accra.
His win was endorsed with 93 votes from delegates.
