Western Regional Football Chairman, Kojo Yankah is considering contesting the Ghana Football Association presidency when the Normalisation Committee are done with their work.
Several match officials and football administrators, including the then President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi were captured on camera receiving bribes. This led to the resignation of the former CAF 1st Vice capo.
The Government of Ghana (GoG) expressed shock and outrage at the contents of the documentary and took steps to dissolve the association after describing it as an embodiment of corruption.
However, after series of legal battles between the GFA and the Government, FIFA and Government of Ghana came to an understanding to form a Normalisation Committee to replace the EXCO.
During an interview with Ohene Bampoe–Brenya on Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo Sports, Mr. Yankah expressed disclosed that he will not be contesting for the regional football association chairmanship role again but could be aiming to move higher by contesting for the FA presidency.
“I won’t stand for the RFA position again. It is a personal decision.”
“I can contest for the GFA presidency. Let’s wait for the time and see. I will beat Alhaji Karim Grusah for the presidency.”
