GFA elections: Kurt Okraku denies alliance with Palmer

Derrick Okraku, Special Aide to Dreams FC Executive Director Kurt Okraku has vehemently denied reports of an alliance with Tema Youth President Wilfred Osei Kwaku for the presidential race of the Ghana Football Association.

In a Press Release signed by Derrick Okraku, the reports are palpably false and are carved out of frivolous imaginations and must be discarded.

Below is the full statement:

• My attention has been drawn to a publication by a website named suggesting a merger between Kurt E S Okraku and Wilfred Osei Kweku (Parma) as presidential hopefuls for the Ghana Football Association.

• I wish to say that this palpable falsehood is deeply rooted in frivolous and factual inaccuracies and should be treated with disregard.

• It is shocking that while Mr Kurt E S Okraku has not declared intentions to vie for the position, attempts would be made to align him with an individual who has publicly affirmed his stance for polls with several campaign trails already attached to his credit.

• Key stakeholders and the general public who have faith in the capabilities of Kurt E S Okraku and yearned for his candidature would be duly informed with much more decorum and perspicuity on an ultimate decision which would be deemed to be in the best interest of Ghana football.

Thank you.

Derrick A. Okraku.

Special Aide,

For Kurt E. S. Okraku
