Inter Allies President Rabeh El-Eter throws weight behind Kurt for second term as GFA President

Rabeh is convinced Ghana football is galloping at a faster rate towards progress and wants Kurt to continue his leadership

President of inter allies football Club Rabeh El-Eter has thrown his weight behind GFA President Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku to run for a second term in office.

Rabeh is convinced Ghana football is galloping at a faster rate towards progress and wants Kurt to continue his leadership.

Despite his club suffering demotion due to AshGold’s betting scandal, Rabeh is happy with Kurt’s leadership and has urged the football public to keep him in leadership.

“Kurt Okraku definitely deserves more time,” he told footballmadeinghana.com.

“He and his team have done a lot in a short time to change the game.

“He knows the smaller clubs need help to develop players for our national teams and he is doing what needs to be done,” he noted.

Rabeh is particularly enthused about the numerous sponsors and partners the FA has been able to secure despite Anas Exposé and COVID-19.

The Exposé painted a gloomy picture about Ghana football and just as Kurt’s administration was beginning to streamline the game, COVID-19 showed its ugly head.

The global pandemic forced the world economy to an abrupt halt, but the Ghana FA can now boast of 25 sponsors and partners post-COVID.

Rabeh can’t hesitate to salute Kurt and his team.

“Looking at how he’s managed to get sponsors for our leagues and the effort in investing in juvenile football and infrastructure, I am convinced he will bring more into the game,” added.

“Considering what he’s done so far, he deserves a second term,” he emphasised.

Kurt has filed his nomination to seek re-election and appeared before the vetting committee on Monday morning to go through the vetting process.

The GFA Presidential election comes off on September 27, 2023 in Taamale.
