Ofeibea Ramatu picks GFA Presidential form

A soccer coach, Ofeibea Ramatu has made true her intention to run for the biggest post in Ghana football after picking up forms to contest for the presidency of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Ofeibea in the company of some of her supporters clad in her campaign shirts, stormed the GFA offices in Accra on Wednesday to pick up nomination forms to contest incumbent Kwesi Nyantakyi in the elections slated for Tamale on August 17.


Ofeibea who is gunning to become the first ever female administrator in the history of the sport in this country, is the only other candidate to declare their intentions to contest incumbent, Kwesi Nyantakyi for the most powerful position in Ghana football.

“Offeibea is a licensed coach who has been involved in football with Berekum Chelsea and other clubs for a while now and it has dawned on her that now is the right time to make a move for the presidency,” Ramatu’s Public Relations Manager, Benjamin Hagan told Allsports.com.gh back in November last year.


“We think that there are flaws within the current administration and we feel we can do better than Kwasi Nyantakyi,” he explained.

“It is true she has not been on the forefront of football issues but our thought is that Nyantakyi was a nobody prior to taking up the reins of Ghana football so the same can happen for her,” Hagan added.
