Executive Member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Randy Abbey, has officially announced that he will not be challenging Kurt Okraku for the presidency of the association in this year's elections.
As Kurt Okraku's tenure as GFA president comes to an end in October 2023, the 52-year-old incumbent is seeking a second term in office. However, his re-election bid is expected to face stiff competition as Congress convenes later this year.
Randy Abbey, a well-known figure in Ghanaian football who guided Heart of Lions to secure a return to the Ghana Premier League, had been considered a potential contender for the presidency. Nonetheless, the veteran journalist has confirmed that he currently has no intentions of vying for the position.
In an interview on Asempa FM, Abbey stated, “I'm not interested in contesting for the GFA presidential seat; it is out of the equation. It is not something that I have ever thought about. It is not something I am interested in. So as for FA presidency, it's out.”
Just recently, Kurt Okraku expressed his confidence in retaining the GFA presidency during an interview with SuperSport. While the upcoming elections are expected to be a closely contested race, Okraku remains optimistic about securing another term in office.
