Ghanaian football delegates have elected Kurt Okraku, as their new football association president.

He beat five other contenders for the highest position in Ghana football on Friday in Ghana’s capital Accra.

Okraku was declared winner after three rounds of voting.

During the third round of voting, his closest contender, contender George Afriyie withdrew from the contest.

The position of the GFA president has been vacant since 2018 when former President Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned.

Nyantakyi was banned by Fifa after he implicated in corrupt acts in an exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

His task will be to restore confidence in the association and re-brand its image which has been battered in the past.

Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo said Okraku “has earned the confidence and trust of the football fraternity, and his victory is well-deserved.”
