Executive Chairman of Asante Kotoko Dr. Kwame Kyei will contest for the GFA Presidency, close associate Nana Kwasi Gyambibi popularly known as Coker has revealed.
Kwame Kyei joins a long list of astute administrators who have already availed themselves for the vacant position.
“I’m confirming that Dr Kwame Kyei will pick his nomination forms and contest for the president of the GFA should the process be open today. I have been instructed by him(Dr Kyei) to tell and to confirm to Ghanaians that he will contest for the presidency,” Nana Kwasi confirmed.
“In his private life, he has always been a football fan, understands football and has been a part of football except that he wasn’t into mainstream football. After taking over Asante Kotoko for the past three years and being in mainstream football administration, he has achieved a lot with Kotoko by consistently playing in the African club Competitions and ensuring that he maintain a team, paying huge salaries every month and ensuring his club is well decorated.”
“If a man of this status decides to lead football in Ghana and ensures it betterment then I believe it is in the right direction.”
The Normalization Committee of the Ghana FA will announce the election guidelines next week. This was after Congress on Thursday adopted the new statues for the Football Association.
