Kurt Okraku has been re-elected as President of the Ghana Football Association.

The Ghana Football Association's president, Kurt Okraku, was re-elected on Thursday during the 2023 Elective Congress in Tamale.

At the congress, Okraku received an astounding amount of support from the one hundred and twenty (120) delegates who did not oppose him.

 117 votes, or 97.5% of the total, were cast in favour of President Okraku's ongoing leadership throughout the election process. Out of all the delegates, just two abstained and voted against his retention.

This overwhelming vote demonstrates the delegates' strong faith in Okraku's leadership and confirms his position as the president of Ghana's football governing body.

Remarkably, the lone contender who was initially anticipated to oppose Okraku, George Afriyie, was eliminated from the contest.

 Due to legal concerns, the elections that were initially set for September have to be rescheduled for this Thursday, October 5.

King Faisal filed an injunction, which is still pending resolution. The court has scheduled a hearing for October 12.

 In addition, after being eliminated from the presidential contest, George Afriyie petitioned the Court of Arbitration for Sport and requested an injunction in a Ghanaian court.

The GFA held the elections in spite of these legal objections, and delegates overwhelmingly supported President Okraku.
