Alhaji MND Jawula has boldly predicted a successful regime under the leadership of Randy Abbey as the future President of the Ghana FA.

According to the ex GFA boss, Abbey possesses all the credentials to be successful once elected President of the association.

“Randy Abbey has the level of education to see him through any football matter and for me he is a potential FA President anyway,” he told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

“The fact he is not a spokesman today for me does not hinder him from doing better, he is a journalist and therefore knows what democracy is all about and has a lot to contribute.”

The veteran football administrator also urged members to give off their best regardless of whether they are given any position or not.

“I for Instance was an FA chairman but now serving on the FA Cup committee and I don’t see it as a demotion whatsoever.

“You don’t always need to be at the top before you can give off your best so for me I’d urge that all members who have something to contribute should give off their best.”

In his response, Abbey insists he is not eying the position at the moment though he is gladdened by the comments passed by one of Ghana’s illustrious football administrator.

“First of all I’d like to thank Mr. Jawula for thinking highly of me looking at who it is coming from but I am not over-ambitious,” he said.

“I believe there is time for everything but at the moment I am focused and dedicated to helping the current President (Nyantakyi) in his four-year term but if in future it is to be, it will.”
