Renowned sports journalist Kwabena Yeboah has made it clear he is not interested in taking up the vacant GFA top job.
A section of the press have reported that the president of the Sport Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) was lined up to lead an Interim Management Committee to take charge of the Ghana football as government takes steps to dissolve the FA.
Ghana’s government is preparing to dissolve its national football association following the revelation of pervasive rot in the recently aired audio-visual investigative documentary by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
”I will plead I don’t want to do it. I’m not interested,” Yeboah is quoted as telling Accra-based EEZY FM.
“I have heard news going round that I’ve been appointed the new FA President. I have had lots of calls in that regard.”
He insists: “It’s not something I want to do… We have different roles to play. You do not necessarily have to be the FA President to serve your nation within the footballing context.
”There are personalities I believe, who can do it. Kudjoe Fianoo, the now GHALCA President, for me is very very efficient. George Afriyie is there he can do it.
”If they go outside the clubs, personalities like Herbert Mensah can easily do it but I do not think I’m ready for that job,” Kwabena Yeboah added.
The Ghana Football Association is currently without a leader following the resignation of Kwesi Nyantakyi last Friday. The Executive Committee now holds the fort.
