Former Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim Saanie Daara, has praised Kurt Okraku’s led administration, saying they have done extremely well.
Mr Okraku was elected as the GFA boss in October 2019 with his term of office set to end in October later this year.
He has declared his intention to seek reelection but he will be contested by former Vice President of the GFA, George Afriyie.
However, Saanie Daara in an interview threw his weight behind Kurt Okraku and believes he is the right man to lead Ghana Football.
“The big show of support here at the FA premises is a clear indication of what Kurt Okraku has done in the past four years to warrant that support,” he told Citi Sports.
“If Kurt has not done enough, people will say it, you don’t owe people anything.
“They are free to do whatever, they want to do and they are free to do whatever they want to do.
“Things have been done in such a way that people have come to show their support to Kurt, it tells you that they appreciate what Kurt has done.
“For me, it is not even about Kurt Okraku, I think we should look at it from a larger picture, first of all, the entire West African football fraternity has endorsed him as their leader.
“Kurt is in charge of WAFU, so what does it tell you, it tells you the people of Ghana must unite behind and give him the necessary push to go forward,” he added.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) elections will be held on September 27 at the Redaach Memorial Hotel in Tamale in Ghana’s Northern Region.
The Election Committee announced the 2023 GFA Presidential Election will be a two-horse race between incumbent Kurt Okraku and George Afriyie.
