Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku, the owner of Ghanaian top-flight team, Dreams FC, has announced his decision to contest for the Ghana Football Association presidential election tentatively scheduled for this month.
The football management MBA holder announced his decision on Twitter yesterday after months of deliberations with various stakeholders in the game.
He becomes the fourth person to join the race after Wilfred Osei Palmer, George Afriyie and Nana Yaw Amponsah declared their intention to contest.
“After a thorough process of deliberations, discussions, engagements and consultations with various stakeholders of our industry, I have decided to put myself forward to contest the leadership of the Ghana Football Association when the election process officially opens.,” Kurt Okraku said in his message released on social media.
“My conviction to contest the upcoming election has been further enforced during the period of consultations with stakeholders.
“It became very evident during this period that the qualities I possess were exactly what stakeholders are looking for as we look to tackle the challenges that face our industry at this particular point in time.”
The quartet is seeking to replace Kwesi Nyantakyi who resigned from the position following an investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
