Berekum Chelsea boss Jantuah backed to dethrone Kurt Okraku

 Bankroller of Berekum Chelsea, Bernard Amofa Jantuah, has emerged as an unexpected candidate for the presidency of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) ahead of this year’s elections.

Renowned for his competence and dedication to transforming Berekum Chelsea into a formidable force in Ghanaian football, Jantuah has garnered praise from various football personali­ties who believe he has what it takes to dethrone incumbent GFA President, Kurt Okraku.

The GFA will hold elections later this year, with Okraku seeking a second term after being elected in 2019, but he is expected to face stiff competition with Jantuah receiving early backing from some football people.

In an interview on Onua TV today, Nana Yaw Achaempong, the Interna­tional Relations Officer of Berekum Chelsea and spokesperson for the club’s president, shared light on Jantuah’s pros­pects in the upcoming GFA elections.

“Mr Jantuah is competent, trust­worthy and committed to serving Ghana Football,” Achaempong said.

He further emphasised that Jantuah perceives the Ghana Premier League as a tool to drive economic sustainability within the football ecosystem.

“Looking at his prowess as a business­man, he has all the connections to make Ghana Football economically viable and that makes him a better choice than Kurt Okraku,” he added.

Currently, he’s at abroad on a business trip, Jantuah is scheduled to return on Sunday, May 21st. Upon his arrival, he plans to hold a press conference to officially announce his intentions to run in the GFA presidential elections.
