The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt E.S. Okraku has vowed to honor his promise of making the country’s football great again but has pleaded with Ghanaians to be patient as his administration works on that.
Kurt was elected GFA president in October last year, in a fiercely contested elections. Prior to the exercise he had campaigned with the message of reigniting the lost passion for the game and creating wealth for the various football stakeholders.
Speaking in an interview with GhanaWeb’s Daniel Oduro, Kurt Okraku highlighted how passionate Ghanaians are to see their football thrive.
“Ghanaians are overly passionate about the game. We love the sport beyond my imagination. And people want the sports to be what we see on our screens” he said.
In as much as Kurt Okraku appreciates what Ghanaian football lovers want, he has however pleaded with them to be patient as he works assiduously to realize that.
“But that journey is a long one. It needs patience; it needs people with the right mindset, energy level and mentality to be able to put the package together” he noted.
Kurt’s administration is expected to run for 4 years. He is brimming with confidence that he will be an achiever when his mandate expires.
“I believe that, 4 years down the line, everybody will be happy to look back at what we have achieved and be happy,” he concluded.
