Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kurt Okraku, has reaffirmed his commitment to leaving a lasting legacy in Ghanaian football.

Okraku’s pledge comes amid criticism over the Black Stars’ recent performances, particularly their failure to advance beyond the group stages at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 in Ivory Coast.

Addressing a press conference in Kumasi on Wednesday, Okraku emphasised his ambition to win major international tournaments, including the AFCON and the FIFA World Cup.

“I want to win the AFCON; I want to win the World Cup!” Okraku declared. “I want to win every competition Ghana finds itself. This is the collective belief and mindset of my fellow Executive Council members.”

Okraku’s statement echoes his earlier promises to revolutionise Ghanaian football and establish the country as a powerhouse in African football.

However, his tenure as GFA President has been marked by controversy, including allegations of corruption and mismanagement within the association.

Despite these challenges, Okraku remains optimistic about the future of Ghanaian football.

He cites the country’s rich history of producing talented players and the ongoing efforts to upgrade the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence as evidence of the progress being made.

“I want to position the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence very well and make it an enviable international standard,” he said.
