All ten regional football association heads picked the nomination forms at the GFA Secretariat on behalf of Kurt Okraku.

Kurt Okraku is seeking for re-election as GFA President, becoming the first candidate to pick his forms since nomination was opened on Monday.

Speaking to pressmen after picking the nomination forms, the Chairman of the Upper West Regional Football Association, Alhaji S.D. Yahaya Biyad stated emphatically that Kurt Okraku has done an incredible job when it comes to juvenile football hence the decision of the various RFA heads to throw their weight behind the former University of Liverpool alumni for a second term as GFA President.

He believes Ghana football will regain its glorious days with Kurt Okraku as GFA President for the next four years.

“We as RFA Chairmen have picked the forms to endorse Kurt Okraku. He has done massively well for Ghana football especially at the grassroots level, and this is a sign of our support to him”, Yahaya Biyad.

Even though Kurt Okraku has received the backing of the regional football association heads, he will be given a stiffer competition from George Afriyie – a former GFA Vice President, and the former Western Regional FA boss Kojo Yankah who have all reaffirmed their intentions to contest for the GFA Presidential seat.
