All Stars chief wants a term of office for GFA presidency

Having witnessed an over decade era of tenure by the embattled former Ghana FA boss, the experienced football administrator wants a time limit for the presidency

Wa All Stars CEO Oduro Nyarko says the tenure of office for the Ghana Football Association(GFA) presidency should not exceed one term.

The one-time winners of the Ghana Premier League chief believes the over-long stay in office by the nation’s football regulatory body presidents hinders the progress of the game hence won’t be prudent for its continuation under reforms.

The outspoken football administrator argues since both the world and continent football governing bodies FIFA and CAF have reduced the terms of office for the presidency of their respective outfits, the same could be done by the West African nation.

“The term of office for the Ghana FA presidency should run for only four years. It will not be prudent for us to use the old system while doing reforms,” Nyarko told Bryt FM.

He added: “it is about time we give GFA President a time limit. The situation where the FA president would be at the helm until he decides to step aside should be halted and truncated for one term,”

“So it is good for the FA to set a time limit for the President and I propose a two to four years for any future President for the GFA to ascend the throne. I think that would be better than allowing one person to be at the helm for many years.”
