Techiman City owner Charles Kwadwo Ntim insists he’s was not surprised Kurt Okraku got the nod to become the GFA’s next President at the Association’s elections last Friday.
The Dreams FC owner beat off competition from George Afriyie, Fred Pappoe, Nana Yaw Amponsah, Amanda Clinton and George Ankoma Mensah to clinch a landslide third round victory.
Okraku becomes the first GFA President post the Anas Expose on Corruption in Football, which led to the resignation and the subsequent banning of former President Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Speaking exclusively to Citi Sports after the elections Ntim said Okraku’s hard work and rigorous campaigning paid off.
“I’m not surprised Kurt Okraku won. I said before the elections that no candidate would win in the first round,” he said.
“Kurt worked very hard during the campaign period. Although we all thought Nana Yaw Amponsah and George Afriyie were going to give him a push, I wasn’t surprised he won it eventually.”
