GFA Secretariat moved to Tamale to prepare for elections

The Ghana Football Association has temporarily moved its Secretariat to Tamale as it begins preparations for the upcoming GFA Presidential Elections to be held on Tuesday August 18.

This comes after an Accra Fast Track High Court dismissed a suit brought against the President of the Association by Mr. John Kwame Quayson which sought to halt the Presidential elections.

In his ruling, the Judge stated that Mr. John Kwame Quayson lacks the capacity to bring the suit against the Association and awarded a cost of GH¢8000 to be paid to the GFA.

This year’s GFA Extraordinary Congress will be held outside the Greater Accra Region for the first time as such the Secretariat has been moved to the Northern Regional capital to ensure that all facilities and logistics are in place for a successful congress.

At the close of filing of nominations, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi was the only candidate who submitted his form and will therefore contest unopposed for the position of GFA President in Tuesday’s elections.
