President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku has denied allegations of sidelining opponents who contested him during the GFA elections.

Several contestants who opposed him during the elections pledged to help Mr Okraku to succeed after he was declared the winner in last year’s elections.

However, it’s believed that some opposition members have been sidelined due to their involvement in the 2019 elections.

But speaking in an exclusive interview with Ghanaweb, the former Dreams FC manager debunked those assertions and cited that opposition members are involved in his administration.

“We’ve been in office for seven months some of them have already played roles in the administration. I don’t think there is any group that contested this election that are not involved in the elections.”

According to him, even though the presidential hopefuls do not hold positions, campaign members of his opposition continue to play a role under his management.

“It’s both, the candidate is not serving and his campaign manager is serving. It’s a blend so if you speak of Palmer, almost every member of his team is involved in my administration in one way or the other.”
