Post #12 exposé: Ghana Football Set For 1461 Days Of Image Redemption Spell, Kurt Okraku Set For Iconic Litmus Test

It promises to halt football activities prior to its premiering and succeeded in ending the football ambitions of many administrators, officials and even footballers to a very large extent. It was dubbed, betraying the game but ended up denting the image of a whole Federation that was losing its grip on the extreme ends.

The architect, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, swept the entire football circle with just one click of a mouse. A stop gap leader was planted on the football fraternity and his spell mirrored an era of agitation and fight for self leadership.

On October 25, 2019, a quintet of aspirants, with one brave lady, headed to the Elective Congress and the delegates endorsed their choice. His name, many thought would have been George Akwasi Afriyie, ended up as Kurt Edwin Simon Okraku.

In much the same way Ghana gained independence on March 6, 1957, the then troubled Ghana football Association left the intensive care unit on October 25, 2019. The surgeons inflicted injuries and wounds that will take time to heal but the real indelible marks were inflicted by the victims themselves – the agitated football family. From their utterance to their lack of unity, self destruction to quest for personal glory at the expense of their brand, the football fraternity lost its birth right and was orphaned in the period of transition.

With an emphatic victory after three rounds of heated contest, Kurt Edwin Simon Okraku roared his way to the podium with the brand name, Game Changer. A social media expert, a team player, commercially inclined administrator and the people’s choice, the parameters leaned towards Kurt and his ancestry backing answered yes. His age or cronies did not matter as he amassed more votes than his followers and perceived allies.

A communique from FIFA however meant that Kurt Okraku was only a ceremonial president as Dr Kofi Amoah and Normalization Committee still headed the Ghana Football Association until Monday, November 17, 2019. The next 1461 days will see the Ghana Football Association headed by Kurt Edwin Simon Okraku, until the next Elective congress. It might appear lengthy spell (4 years) but the hunger that has striken the football fraternity will swallow his first tenure like an alligator at the river side.

The newly elected FA president left his mark on the local terrain with historic branding of the MTN FA Cup but his task now goes beyond just a cup competition into a whole Federation. The unappealing nature of the Federation makes it even more difficult for the Game Changing FA cappo to redeem the image of the one time vibrant Association. The hope to Ghanaians however is, if there ever was any personality capable of turning things around, then his name is Kurt Okraku. The next four years, expected to change the fortunes of Ghana football, can best be compared to an embryonic stages of human development with tiny cords and fluids keeping it alive.
