Kurt Okraku needs 16 years to complete all projects – Charles Taylor


Former Ghana Premier League player Charles Taylor is in favor of increasing the number of terms a president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) can serve.

Ahead of the upcoming GFA Congress in July, it is believed that a proposal of increasing the two terms of office of the GFA president to three terms is one of the key things to be deliberated on which could see Kurt Okraku in power for 12 years.

While many Ghanaians and pundits alike have objected to the idea, Taylor who has been a regular critic of the current administration believes Kurt Okraku will need even more than the three terms to achieve all his targets as the FA boss.

“I agree with the GFA Exco on extending the term of office of the GFA President,” he told Angel FM.

“I think Kurt Okraku for instance needs 16 years to complete all the projects he has started. He can hand over to those who are interested after the 16 years.”

Meanwhile, the first term of Okraku will end in October with an election expected to be conducted to either maintain him or elect another leader.

Bernard Amofa Jantuah the CEO of Berekum Chelsea as well as former Western Regional Football Association Chairman are the notable individuals to have declared their intentions to contest the office of the president.

The FA is however yet to release the roadmap for the next elections.
