Ghana's No. 1

Ghana FA boss Kurt Okraku rubbishes claims of being a dictator

Published on: 23 June 2020

Ghana FA boss Kurt Okraku has rubbished claims he's a dictator, insisting such unsubstantiated allegations are borne out of imaginations.   

The Ghanaian FA leader has come under some scrutiny amid claims he's running a one-man show.

A tiny minority of the Ghanaian media have also launched scathing attack on the seven month old administration of the former Dreams FC Executive Chairman.

But he has rubbished claims that he takes unilateral decisions at the expense of the powerful Executive Council.

“I am not a dictator,” he told GTV Sports Plus.

“The Executive Council can testify to that. As an association, turbulence will come and you will need to take a tough decision but that does not mean you are a dictator.

“The Executive Council is heavily involved in any decision. It is not a one man show as perceived by many.

“We are working as a group.”

Mr Okraku beats competition from closest rival George Afriyie to emerge the new GFA boss after Kwesi Nyantakyi in October 2019.

He has been busy engaging stakeholders for way out to restart football since the outbreak of coronavirus in a bid to put the association on a sound footing.
