President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku, has called on members to reject those who malign association publicly.
Speaking at the 26th GFA Ordinary Congress on Tuesday, the GFA boss noted that there cannot be two football families, and members must sideline such selfish divisive individuals.
“Despite the hard work done by the GFA, a few of us do not think about this family; there are a few of us, who perhaps only think about their personal interest; there are still a few of us who do not think about the total good of our football,” an emotional Okraku noted.
“There are a few of us who continuously go out of this family and go out to the public space to malign your product, my product, your business. We must reject these people,” he admonished.
The GFA President and his Executive Council (ExCo) has been touring corporate Ghana to seek support for the development of football.
He says corporate organisations would not enter into any agreement with the FA if such utterances are directed towards the product and they can not be part of the football family.
“If I go to corporate Ghana on daily basis preaching Ghana football and yet some of us, just a few of us, continuously damage the image of the product we intend to love, that we spend our money on, we need to reject these people; we must say no to such people.
“Again, football is the only sport that brings all of us together. Football cuts across all religions, all political divides.
“There’s only one football family; there cannot be two, we must always have one.
“We will disagree on issues, we will disagree on how I should work, but let’s think Ghana football first,” he stated.
