I’m not interested in GFA Presidency - Dr KK Sarpong

Former Asante Kotoko Chairman, Dr. Kofi Kodua Sarpong, has cleared the air as to whether he would contest for the Ghana FA top seat or not.

According to the Chief Executive of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) boss, he has no interest in becoming Kwesi Nyantakyi’s successor hence won’t contest for the nation’s football governing body’s highest position.

Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM, he said ”I can tell you emphatically that I’m not interested in GFA presidency and I can never be interested. I can assist in other ways but not as the president,”

He however, charged football people to have good heart and be objective going forward.
