Don’t elect a destroyer for Ghana football - Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe

Former Ghana FA chairman, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe, has sent a huge word of caution to the 120 delegates who will be voting in this year’s GFA Elections not to give power to someone who will wreck the nation’s footballing fortunes.

The Ghana FA is seeking to find new leadership after Kwesi Nyantakyi’s exit in 2018 amid staggering revelations in the Anas “Number 12” documentary. The investigative work led to a freeze on all footballing activities in Ghana for a period with FIFA setting up an Normalisation Committee to oversee reforms and a transition to a more permanent and regular type of management.

Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe said that the nation’s football had taken a battering and thus, it was important for those who had the biggest say in choosing the leadership for Ghana football to hand the reins of the game to a person who would elevate the status of Ghana football instead of sinking it further.

“With the upcoming elections, I believe that we should make sure that we elect someone who will bring football back to its best days. We do not want a leader who will bring all sorts of problems and send us back to the difficult days.

I urge the candidates to be careful of who they vote for. If we vote for the right person, then we will have a successful FA but if we fail to do so, then we will fall back into the snake pit.

We all know how we got into this situation and so, the delegates must be sure of the one they are voting for because we do not want have regrets later.”

Earlier this week, the Normalisation Committee released the delegates who would be voting in the elections set for October 25 at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Accra.
