GFA presidential candidate, George Ankoma Mensah has today, October 17 launched his manifesto dubbed "Football For All” which highlights his plans for Ghana football.

The launch took place at the Labadi beach hotel in Accra with fellow candidates Amanda Clinton and Kurt Okraku gracing the occasion.

According to the Lawyer, he plans on introducing a strict code of ethics in his administration to help do away with corrupt practices.

“I want there to be strict code of ethics, anybody who will work in administration in football has to sign the code of ethics and we are going to enforce it strictly, now if you fall foul of it, you have to be dealt with,” he said.

“The reason we have not made strides in this, is that we have not punished corruption and in-transparency, if we begin to do that it will become a culture and once it becomes a culture, it means we are making progress,” he added.

Ankoma Mensah who is among the six candidates to have successfully passed vetting revealed the thematic areas he will focus on which includes bridging the infrastructural gap when given the nod to replace Kwesi Nyantakyi.

“We need to bridge the infrastructural gap, we haven’t had the construction of excellent pitches for our children, and our footballers for a long time”.

“Our flagship program will be the building of a national center of football excellence, now this will be built, it looks ambitious but we can do it.”

The GFA Presidential election is slated for October 25.

Meanwhile, the Regional Football Association (RFA) elections scheduled for Friday, October 18.
