Ghana Football Association presidential aspirant Fred Pappoe has launched his manifesto at the City Hall of the new AMA Complex in Accra ahead of the October 25 elections.

The former GFA vice president’s document focuses on FIVE Rs; recover, restore, redeem, repair and revive Ghana football.

According to the Great Olympics Board Chairman, Ghana football has lost the love and support of the football public and the corporate world and will use the FIVE Rs if given the nod.
