Ghana Premier League board chairman Cudjoe Fianu has said the current decision of the Ghana Football Association to allow the the league to be autonomous is a fulfilment of a campaign promise by the current Ghana Football Association president Kurt E.S Okraku during an interview on Sekondi/Takoradi based radio station Skyy Power FM.
“During the campaign for Ghana Football Association Presidential seat, most of the candidates including Kurt Okraku himself promised the delegates they will take the Ghana premier league to autonomous and that is what he is doing. He told the the EXCO about it and they said they should start the process.”
He said Accra Hearts of Oak bank roller Togbe Afede, Delali Sananu and John Ansah plus two EXCO members will add up to form a 5 member committee to draft a proposal to the EXCO were they they will have to approve before the journey to autonomy begins.
He added “it will be in the supreme interest of the clubs if the league goes autonomous because there are nine national teams the FA takes care of and they will need time to concentrate on them.”
