Nana Gyambibi Coker, an assistant to the Executive Chairman of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Dr. Kwame Kyei, has confirmed that the business mogul will pick nominations forms to contest for the vacant Ghana Football Association (GFA) presidential seat.
The confirmation comes on the back of an earlier report filed by footballghana.com indicating that Dr. Kwame Kyei is ready to go head to head with other aspirants in a bid to lead the new era of the football governing body.
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi FM today, Nana Gyambibi shared, “I'm confirming that Dr. Kwame Kyei will pick his nomination forms and contest for the presidency of the GFA should the process be open today. I have been instructed by him (Dr. Kyei) to tell and to confirm to Ghanaians that he will contest for the presidency”.
He continued, “In his private life, he has always been a football fan, understands football and has been a part of football except that he wasn't into mainstream football"
“After taking over Asante Kotoko for the past three years and being in mainstream football administration, he has achieved a lot with Kotoko by consistently playing in the African club Competitions and ensuring that he maintain a team, paying huge salaries every month and ensuring his club is well branded”
“If a man of this status decides to lead football in Ghana and ensures it betterment then I believe it’s in the right direction”.
Dr. Kwame Kyei has been with Kotoko since 2017 and continues to drive them to greater heights.
Ahead of the GFA elections, the CEO of Unity Oil Company Limited is set to face competition from George Afriyie Kurt Okraku, Winfred Osei Palmer, Fred Pappoe, and Nana Yaw Amponsah
