Ghana football

The reign of the normalization committee at the helm of the Ghanaian football federation has come to an end as Kurt Okrak has been voted the new president of the Ghana Football Association.

The former sports journalist won all of the 3 rounds of elections with 93 votes in the last round against Ghana Football Association vice-president George Afriyie.

The 24th president of the Ghana Football Association takes over from the normalization committee who were installed by the world football governing body following an investigation which revealed wide spread corruption under the reign of Kwesi Nyantakyi who was forced to resign as Ghana FA president and subsequently resigned as vice president of the confederation of African football.

The 48-year-old after his elections says he is set on making the Ghana FA a credible institution once more and build a solid foundation for the future.

The secretary general of FIFA Fatma Samoura has just congratulated the new Ghana FA head and says she is looking forward to working with him and his team in future.
