By Dennis Osei Gyamfi, GNA
Sept. 11, GNA - Alhaji Karim Grusah,
President of Division One side King Faisal Football Club, has said his family
advised him to pull out of the presidential race of the Ghana Football
football administrator dropped his longtime ambition to occupy the top seat of
Ghana football with the excuse that he had consulted stakeholders, family and
friends, who had all advised him against contesting.
In an interview
with the GNA Sports, Alhaji Grusah added he felt there were other areas he
could better work to help Ghana Football than becoming the president.
“I am no longer
contesting for the GFA presidency because everyone I have talked to including
my children, family, friends and even football stakeholders told me to hold
on,” he said.
“I can do other
things for Ghana football in the area of Juvenile and lower division football,
so I will concentrate on that and see how we can help the next administration
He noted that
he would at the right time declare his support for one of the candidates adding
that he was waiting for them to pick forms and pass the vetting.
The roadmap to
the elections is not known yet but about seven hopefuls have confirmed their
interest including George Afriyie, Wilfred Osei Palmer, Kurt Okraku, Fred Pappoe, Nana Yaw Amponsah,
Dr. Kwame Kyei and Dr. Tony Aubynn.
