Published on: 06 September 2019

Executive Chairman of Asante Kotoko Dr. Kwame Kyei could contest for the GFA Presidency following pressure from the masses, according to the Greater Accra rep of the club, Nana Kwame Dankwa. 

Nana Kwame Dankwa disclosed that the affable football administrator qualifies to run for the seat and is seen by the masses as the right man to turn the fortunes of Ghana Football.

“He is the executive chairman of Asante Kotoko, he qualifies to run for the GFA Presidency, It will interest you to know the number of people knocking on his door and persuading him to contest the GFA Presidency," he told Oyerepa FM.

“They believe he will be a better GFA Boss and so I can tell you he is doing consultations whether to contest or not," he added.

Despite the pressure from the public and some football persons, the Business mogul is yet to decide whether or not to contest for the top job.

“He has not decided yet, he will officially come out to declare his intentions whether to contest or not. Most of the people pressuring him say he can turn things around if he’s the GFA President,” Nana Kwame told Oyerepa FM.

Dr. Kwame Kyei has won over fans of Asante Kotoko with the tremendous change at the club that has seen them reaches the group stages of the CAF Confederations Cup.

The Porcupine Warriors are through to the second round of the CAF Champions League after eliminating Kano Pillars of Nigeria.

Within the short period at the helm of affairs, the Porcupine Warriors have won the FA Cup and the inaugral normalisation committee special competition.
