Doku – GARFA boss

The chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Football Association (GARFA), Nii Komiete Doku, believes he would retain his chairmanship for the next four years after achieving a lot for the region.

Nii Doku, who took over office following the death of his mentor, Jordan Anagblah in 2012, is being challenged by Eugene Jacquaye in their upcoming RFA elections slated for Monday.

In an interview with the Times Sports yesterday, Nii Doku said: “I expect my people to retain me in office after achieving a lot for the region.”

“Football management is about experience and after serving our late chairman, Jordan Anagblah for years, I believe I’m the best candidate to lead the association,” he added.

He, however, believes his opponent would not be a match for him on the day since the delegates will vote on merits and achievements.

Talking about achievement, Nii Doku noted that Dreams FC have been able to qualify for the top flight from the region during his reign as the chairman.

He promised to render accounts to the association which he said would bring transparency during his leadership.

Meanwhile, Augustine Asante has retained his position as Chairman of the Brong Ahafo Regional Football Association after winning the elections held at the Sunyani Stadium on Tuesday.

Asante pulled 103 votes, while his contender Ralph Gyambrah had 76 votes out of the total votes cast.

The incumbent RFA Chairman will therefore represent the region on the GFA National Executive Committee for another four-year term.

Incumbents Osei Tutu Agyeman and Abdul Lawal Ganiyu have both received endorsements after contesting unopposed as Regional Football Association chairmen of the Ashanti and Eastern RFAs respectively.

They will both return to the GFA National Executive Committee for another four-year term.
