Leanier Addy beats Habiba Attah to retain GFA EXCO seat

Madam Leanier Afiye-Obo Addy has been elected to represent the Constituent bodies on the Ghana Football Association National Executive Committee for another 4-year term.

Madam Addy who is the incumbent Constituent bodies’ representative on the Executive Committee, pulled 6 votes to beat Madam Habiba Atta Forson who got 2 out of a total of 8 votes cast in the elections held at the GFA Secretariat on Monday morning.

Delegates for the election were drawn from the Constituent bodies which includes Women’s Football, the Referees’ Association of Ghana, the Security Services, School and Colleges, Coaches Association, Players, Juvenile Football and University Sports.

This begins the electoral process for the election of 22 individuals who will form the next GFA National Executive Committee.

Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi was elected unopposed last month to serve as President of the GFA and as the Chairman of the Executive Committee for the next 4 years.

Elections for the representatives of the Premier League and Division One Clubs will be held today at the same venue.
