Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi has endorsed current leader Kurt Okraku, expressing faith in his capabilities with adequate backing from stakeholders.

Nyantakyi highlighted Okraku's potential to elevate Ghana's football status, emphasizing the importance of unified support for the GFA president.

Despite recent criticisms of Okraku's administration following underwhelming performances by the Black Stars at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations , Nyantakyi remains optimistic about the future of Ghana football under Okraku.

In an interview with 3Sports, Nyantakyi stressed the necessity of collective assistance for Okraku, urging unity after elections to ensure support for the elected candidate.

“Oh I think that he is capable, he is capable. He just deserves help. He needs the help. Everybody should help him. One thing I advise is that when it’s election time, people come with different tasks and have different candidates but let’s rally around whoever the majority elects and provide the needed support so that we can achieve the common objective,” he stated

“The common objective is to find national teams succeeding. Our football grassroots. Men’s and women’s football, everything going well. So let’s give him the support and I have no doubt that if we give him the support he will succeed”, he added.
