Despite the obvious growing public furor towards the Kurt Okraku-led Ghana Football Association, GFA, administration for multiple reasons, cannon fodder media practitioner Sheikh Tophic, has insisted that he would score the performance of his boss 100 percent.
Speaking to Berekum-based Akwaaba Radio, Tophic re-echoed the words of Ibrahim Sannie Daara who scored Kurt Okraku 9.8/10 for work done as his tenure comes to an end.
Tophic, who was convicted by an Accra High Court for disrespecting the orders of the law court, claimed that Okraku has overachieved his target despite the many shortfalls.
“If you ask me to score the work done by Kurt Okraku I will give him 100/100. He has overachieved,” he said.
Kurt Okraku, the President of the Ghana Football Association – GFA, has failed to restore football in the country back to its glory after being voted into power almost 4 years ago.
However, the ex-Dreams FC bankroller has insisted that he has overachieved in his first-term as the leader of the GFA.
While, none of Ghana’s national teams have impressed at any major tournament in the last 16 months, Ghana’s female U17 side – the Black Maidens, have been banned for 2 CAF and FIFA tournaments after being found guilty of fielding overaged players.
The West African powerhouse were also fined $100,000 for committing the offences which is heavily frowned upon by the laws of FIFA.
Angry reactions reached the highest crescendos after Ghana’s U23 side were eliminated from the Paris 2024 Olympic Games qualification series in Morocco.
After the team’s disappointing outing against Morocco and Guinea, Ghanaian influencers from all walks of life including ex-players and top television personalities have added their voices to the sorry state of Ghana football under Kurt Okraku.
The Vice Chairperson of the Youth, Sports and Culture Committee of Parliament Eugene Boakye Antwi is convinced a change of leadership is necessary at the Ghana Football Association to to save the dwindling fortunes of the sport in the country.
