Mr. Fianoo speaking to Media General’s Kumasi-based Akoma FM believes having a second look into the election process of the GFA to avert future occurrence is the ideal.

“Personally, I feel that if anyone feels shortchanged in a way the individual should test the law and let’s see. However, I also feel that if any individual did the wrong by not submitting the required documents then the law as it is should take its course.

But we must take a look at why consistently any individual intending to contest a sitting FA President is disqualified. This is not good for our association,” he said.
