Onua Sports has reported that Kojo Yankah, a former Western Regional Football Association Chairman, will announce his bid for the presidency of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on June 6.
Yankah believes he has what it takes to lead Ghana football, and he will officially enter the contest for this year’s election, which is slated for October.
Yankah has a wealth of experience in football administration, having served in various capacities within the GFA under the leadership of Kwesi Nyantakyi. He was also a member of the Black Stars management committee.
Yankah, who is known for his frankness, was the chairman of the Western Region Football Association for eight years after succeeding the late Lee Yankey. He also served as an Executive Committee member of the GFA.
Yankah will be the second person to declare his intention to run for the GFA presidency, after Kurt Okraku, who is seeking a second term in office.
