Former Sports Minister under the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) government, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has advised Mr. Kurt Okraku, the President of the Ghana Football Association to learn from the mistakes of his predecessor, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi.
He said Kurt Okraku should not repeat the mistakes of his predecessor Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Mr. Nyantakyi has been banned for life from all football-related activities by FIFA after he was caught in the Anas Number documentary.
According to the former Sports Minister, it will be too premature to judge Kurt Okraku as he has not even spent a year as the GFA boss.
“Kurt Okraku has not spent even a year as the GFA president so let’s give him the opportunity to prove himself,”he told Kumasi FM
“Let’s together support him with prayers to succeed but he must learn lessons from his predecessor and make sure he does not repeat those same mistakes.”
Kwasi Nyantakyi was the GFA boss for nearly 13 years.
Kurk Okraku was elected last November as President of the FA after stretching the likes of George Afriyie, Nana Yaw Amponsah and Fred Pappoe.
Since he was elected, some cross-section of football administrators have criticized him but the FA boss has been resilient in his decision making to move Ghana football to higher heights
