President Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku says a new chapter of football development is now following his retention as head of Ghana’s football governing body on Thursday.
President Simeon-Okraku received 117 of the 120 votes cast – representing 97.1% of votes to continue as the head of Ghana’s football for the next four years.
He affirmed his quest to make Ghana football attractive across board and competitive on all fronts.
“Indeed in the last four years, we have made some good steps in fixing the fundamentals of the sport and to ensure that our country is competitive on all fronts,” President Simeon-Okraku said in his post-election speech.
“The confidence you have reposed in us to go the extra mile to ensuring that our game becomes enjoyable just the way we want to have.
“I know I made a lot of good friends. At the same time, I know I also know there were enemies. For all of us who love football and have been on this journey together, whoever I offended I say I am sorry. If I did wrong you, it was for footballing reasons. I have always said the road will never be smooth and easy but we will get there.
“That is why I called on all of you to come together because the GFA is ready to listen to the other minds.
“A new chapter of developing our game is now, a new chapter of ensuring the growth of our game awaits us and as a family we owe it a duty to solve our problems,” he added.
President Simeon-Okraku and his new Executive Council will hold their positions for the next four years.
