The areas are:
Governance and Administration
Safety and Security
Reforms Implementation Process
Osei stated that the success of Ghana football would hinge on these areas and thus, they would would be at the heart of his work should he get elected.
“I am capable”- Osei on why he should be GFA President
Speaking after his presentation, he said that he had built himself well and had done enough in terms of local football to to be voted for as the new GFA President.
“I have pursued football from 2005 until now. At a point, I started with three people but they all left. I founded Tema Youth Football Club up to this level and if you look at the players that I have been able to develop at Tema Youth, I had five players in the U-20 teams and four of them went to the World Cup.
So in terms of the education and academics, I have shown that I have what it takes (he went to the University of Cape Coast for his undergraduate education and the University of Ghana Business School for his MBA).
In terms of working experience, I have it and when it comes to a vision for Ghana football, I have clearly espoused that too and so, I have no doubts that I am the right choice when it comes to the GFA Presidency.”
Osei is credited with the discovery of players like Joseph Paintsil, Thomas Partey, Moses Odjer, Foli Adade and many others.
