President Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku has expressed appreciation to the football community for believing in his vision despite challenges in his first term in office.
The former Dreams FC Executive Director who retained his position as head of Ghana’s football governing body, thanked delegates and the football community for reposing confidence in him for a second term.
He received 117 of the 120 total votes cast – representing 97.1% of votes to continue as the head of Ghana’s football for the next four years.
“With a gracious heart, I want to thank you for travelling far and near to be part of this process. We had 120 delegates attending this morning’s function. Ayekoo,” he said.
“In 2019 our football family gave us the opportunity to serve after our dear country’s football went through very difficult and challenging times.
“After Normalization, the entire World was confronted with COVID-19 and again our football was badly affected but it took a strong effort from this football family to save our game.
“During the last Congress in Kumasi, I did say that our football went through good times and some bad times. But throughout this period we stayed together, in these good times we chalked some success on and off the pitch. In these same bad times we lost some battles on the field but we believed in the vision.
“This is the time to work together no matter our differences just for the sake of Ghana football,” he added.
President Simeon-Okraku and his new Executive Council will hold their positions for the next four-years.
