Randy Abbey has revealed why he has decided to contest for the Executive Council slot in the upcoming GFA elections.

The football administrator is competing for one of the 3 available slots to represent Division One League clubs on the GFA Executive Council.

Three of the 9 personalities which include Alhaji Grusah, Otuo Acheampong Barima Boadu, Kweku Abaka Eyiah, Eric Oppong Yeboah, Justice Boison, Samuel Anim Addo, Gideon Fosu, Mark Addo and Ransford Abbey will have to be voted to represent Divison One clubs for the next four years on the Executive Council. 

According to the Heart of Lions President, the decision to ditch the GFA Presidential seat for the Executive Council slot is that the latter is more important when you juxtapose it with happened in the past administration. 

It is believed former GFA President Kwesi Nyanktakyi was not called to order by the then Executive Committee (now Executive Council) which accounted to the collapse of his administration.

“I think the Executive Council is more important and that is my reason to contest for the position. If the Executive Committee in the past administration was effective things would not have gone the way it did”, he told Happy FM.

“I heard people contesting for the presidential position and I saw it as a crowded field. I couldn’t also compete due to my academics because I was persuading a Doctorate degree and hopefully in December I will be rewarded with a doctorate degree”.

With the Executive Council elections coming off on October 24 at the GFA secretariat, Randy Abbey has called on the delegates to give him the nod as his track record speaks for itself.

“The delegates know that some of us can do the job and I urge them to vote for those who can the job”
