Fred Pappoe 'likely' to contest for GFA Presidency

Former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association, Fred Pappoe has stated that he might contest for the top position following the vacancy created by the resignation of ex-President Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Nyantakyi resigned following the revelations of the Anas Expose, which caught several top officials on camera involved in corrupt practices.

Since the collapse of the ex-regime, several names have started springing up including the immediate past vice George Afriyie and Dreams FC Executive chairman Kurt Okraku.

Nana Yaw Amponsah and Wilfried Osei have confirmed they will contest for the top job.

Meanwhile, Fred Papoe says he is likely to contest for the position following encouragement from people close to him.

“It is very likely that I’ll contest the elections,” he told Asempa FM. “I have been speaking to people and they keep encouraging me to contest.”

Kudjoe Fianoo, Alhaji Karim Grunzah and Alhaji Ali Raji are other names that are interested in the top job.
