Member of Parliament for South Tongu constituency, Hon. Kobena Mensah Woyome has backed newly elected GFA President Kurt Okraku to match the high expectations on his shoulders.

According to Woyome, who also doubles as a member of the Youth, Sports and Culture committee in Parliament, Kurt has the capacity to steer Ghana Football in the right direction.

The experienced football administrator was sworn in as new leader of the West African nation’s football governing body after beating five other candidates in a keenly-contested election a fortnight ago.

“I have no doubt that, as the head of new management team of the nation’s number one game, Mr Okraku should able to move Ghana football forward,” Hon. Woyome told GNA Sports.

“I have no doubt that the current President, with his deep knowledge in fundraising, corporate management, and versatility would match the expectations of Ghanaians,” he added.
