The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is on the verge of appointing sports journalist, Henry Asante Twum as its communications director.

The GFA has been without a substantive communications director since Kurt Okraku assumed office as president of the FA in October 2019.

The position was formerly occupied by Saanie Daara until the association was halted following a documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas which exposed rot by authorities at the helm of affairs.

During this period, the Normalization Committee set up by FIFA also appointed veteran sports journalist Dan Kweku Yeboah to fill the post last year.

Henry established a good relationship with Kurt Okraku at Dreams FC where the broadcaster served as the communications officer of the club formerly owned by the GFA president.

The sports journalist has worked with several Ghanaian media houses notably Radio XYZ, Starr FM, GhOne TV, GBC among others.

As the former host of ‘Starr Sports’ on Starr FM, Mr Asante became famous for his constructive criticism of the erstwhile GFA led by Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Asante is also popular on the local scene for his excellent delivery of commentary in the Ghana Premier League for the last few years.

He is expected to bring his journalistic tenacity to bare and assist in shaping the misconception about the GFA.
