2023 GFA Elections: Kurt Okraku to go unopposed as official list released

The president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kurt Okraku is set to go unopposed in the 2023 GFA Elections following the revelation of the official list of candidates by the Elections Committee of the association.

In a list released on Tuesday, September 19, only one presidential candidate, Kurt Okraku was stated to have passed the vetting process and was therefore eligible to contest.

This follows the appeals committee’s decision to reject the appeal of George Afriyie, who was determined to contest the incumbent in the elections.

The former vice president was initially disqualified with the Elections Committee citing his inability to meet necessary requirements to contest the high office.

Afriyie’s further attempt to appeal in a bid to see his decision overturned was unfruitful as well and reports have already suggested his decision to take the matter to a higher tribunal the Court of Abitration for Sports (CAS).

This means the 2023 Elections may proceed with Kurt Okraku as the sole candidate contesting.

Okraku won the 2019 Elections and has since then been in office for the past four years with his first term set to conclude in October.

However, it remains unknown if the Elective Congress will come off on September 27 as earlier announced due to a subsequent announcement indicating thee suspension of the timetable.
