“I don’t want to do anything that will hurt Ghanaians. I believe in one step at a time so gradually football will be back,” he noted.

Speaking at the 26th Ordinary Congress of the association, Kurt Okraku vowed to ensure the return of the game.

He promised his members that the FA will not relent in its effort for the resumption of the game.

Kurt Okraku told the stakeholders that he shares in their pain and frustration and asked them to have faith in the him and the Executive Council to bring the game back.

He underscored the importance of football as a unifier and said when football resumes, it will help bring the country together.

“I am sure you heard the President and colleagues let me say that our football is coming back. It will unite us more than ever. Insha Allah it is coming back”.

“Thank you and I salute you all”, he concluded.

Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah who also addressed the Congress reiterated Akufo-Addo’s statement and assured them of a return soon.

Isaac Asiamah lavished praises on Kurt Okraku for steering the GFA from the stormy clouds of the Number12 investigative documentary.
