“We know of the departure of Abra-Appiah after 10 years of active service but the executive committee has already appointed Ashford Tettey Oku as his successor,” Nyantakyi toldHappy FM.

“We believe in his qualities and hope he will help endlessly with the development of football in the country,” he added.

Oku’s immediate task will be the organization of 2015-16 Ghana Premier League which has been delayed due to the legal tussles between Techiman City FC and Wa African United as well as Dreams FC and Tema Youth FC.
