Ten Regional Football Association chairmen said on Monday it was backing Ghana FA boss Kurt Okraku in his re-election bid to lead Ghanaian football for another four years. 

Okraku will be seeking a second-term in office following a marathon race to the throne in 2019.

A third round of voting was required to separate the Ghana FA boss and his closest rival George Afriyie four years ago.

But the dynamics appears to have changed drastically with the incumbent enjoying a massive ringing endorsement to continue with his leadership of Ghana Football.

Okraku is a clear favourite in the race, and appears to get a head start after 10 regional FA chairmen backed his re-election bid.

The upcoming Elective Congress, scheduled for September 27, will see Okraku potentially face off against a former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association, who finished as the runner-up in the closely contested 2019 presidential election.

As the campaign and preparations for the Elective Congress unfold, Okraku's endorsement by the RFA chairmen adds a significant boost to his bid for a second term at the helm.

Under Okraku's leadership as the head of GFA, notable achievements have been recorded, highlighting his impactful tenure.

These achievements encompass significant milestones for Ghana's national football teams.

One of the remarkable accomplishments during Okraku's time as FA boss was Ghana's victory in the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations in 2021.

Additionally, Okraku's tenure saw a significant achievement for the senior national team, the Black Stars.

After a disappointing absence from the World Cup in 2018, he played a pivotal role in leading the team back to the global stage.

The catch Them Young Policy, multiple sponsorships are just a few of the several achievements chalked under his reign.
