Fred Pappoe says he will contest for the Ghana FA elections

Fred Pappoe has become the fifth person to declare his intention to contest for the vacant Ghana Football Association Presidential seat after congress paved the way for elections.

The former vice president of the federation said he will pick his forms when the Normalisation Committee invites potential candidates to pick their forms for the election.

The board member of second-tier club, Great Olympics is the latest to indicate his interest in becoming the next President of the GFA.

Pappoe is looking to stage a comeback into leadership position at the federation following his exit from the Executive Committee in 2015.

Pappoe will be seeking to replace his former boss Kwesi Nyantakyi who resigned in the wake of an investigative piece by controversial  journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas on corruption in Ghana Football.

He will join Nana Yaw Amponsah, George Afriyie, Kurt Okraku, Osei Kweku Palmer who have already declared their intention to contest for the high seat.

“I will pick my nomination forms at the right time," he told Atinka FM.

"My records are there for everyone to see, I won’t sleep on it, I won’t be complacent.

"I will be a listening president not only to football people but the whole of Ghana," he insisted.

Pappoe will be seeking to return the GFA to normalcy as it is currently being run by a Normalisation Committee appointed by FIFA in September last year 2018 following Nyantakyi's exit.

The former Black Stars Management Committee chairman has been identified as a knowledgeable and experienced person who would be a good candidate for the GFA Presidency and lead Ghana football back to glory days.

He was deputy to Kwesi Nyantakyi during his first term and was also chairman of the Black Stars management committee.

He was later appointed the chairman of Black Stars B management committee.

Mr Pappoe will be hoping to lead the football federation since exit in 2015
