Kurt Okraku has been re-elected as President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) after running unopposed.
The 52-year-old has been appointed to his second term in office following the GFA Elective Congress held on Thursday, October 5, 2023 in Tamale.
He received 117 votes out of a possible 120, representing a remarkable 98.3% of the total votes cast by the Football Association members.
Okraku’s uncontested victory came after the disqualification of his only opponent, George Afriyie, a former Ghana FA vice president who aimed to unseat the incumbent GFA president after losing to him four years ago.
Afriyie was disqualified in September for failing to secure the required number of GFA member endorsements, and his appeals were later rejected by the GFA’s Appeals Committee.
Despite running unopposed, Kurt Okraku required to receive at least 50% plus one of the total votes cast in order to be re-elected, a requirement which he comfortably surpassed by receiving 98.3% of the total votes cast.
This resounding mandate reaffirms Okraku’s position as the head of Ghana football governing body and projects the delegates’ high level of trust in his leadership.
As a result, he will lead Ghana football Association for another four years.
