The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt E.S Okraku, has admonished the football community to reject people who try to taint the image of the football brand as they strive to market the brand to the corporate world to earn sponsorships.

Ghana football has gone through a turbulent time in the past three years. An investigative documentary by Anas Aremeyaw that exposed ills in Ghana Football and halted football activities for almost a year and a half and now COVID-19.

Mr. Okraku was speaking at GFA’s 26th Ordinary Congress held at Prampram on Tuesday and said all must put hands on deck to uplift the image of the football product in Ghana.

“Despite the hard work by you and I, there are a few of us who continuously leave their respect for this family and go out to malign our own product.

“We must reject this as a family”, he noted.

“If I go to Corporate Ghana daily preaching Ghana football and some of us continuously damage the image of the product we love, that will bring money to us and our kids, we must say no to such.

“There is always one football family and we must not have two.”

The Ghana FA boss believes it is fair to criticize at platforms they have created to deliberate on issues and not in the public space.

“Let’s learn to go through our laid and respected ways of communication. Hold back negativity in the public space and speak on the platforms we create for ourselves.

“It is fair enough to insult and address me here [at Congress] because this is where we can address our negative issues and not in the public space.

“This is the right place to disagree and agree, and not on the public”, he urged.

“For all of you who have spent time, left your individual jobs to come here, I salute you.

“For us who are not here today, believe me, we are still one family. Let’s come together and build our football.”
