Nana Yaw Amponsah is the right person to lead Ghana football - NPP deputy general secretary

Lawyer Obiri Boahen, the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party has thrown weight behind Nana Yaw Amponsah adding that he is the right person to lead football in the country.

The astute football administrator is among the personalities contesting for the country's football governing body top seat after former Ghana FA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned following the airing of the 'Number 12' documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

He faces tough personalities like Kurt Okraku, Osei Kweku Palmer, George Afriyie, Kudjoe Fianoo among others who have all declared their interest in steering the affairs of football in the country.

In an interview with Bryt FM, Obiri Boahen said, “Nana Yaw Amponsah is the best man to be the next GFA president because of his integrity” he said.

“Nana Yaw Amponsah is far better than George Afriyie. And I think he can improve our game with regards to the knowledge he has in football management,” he ended.

Nana Yaw Amponsah's Phar Rangers regained their status as a Division One League Club after winning their case against the GFA following a court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) ruling.

The GFA presidential elections have been slated for September 27, 2019.
