Former Veep of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and Board member of Accra Great Olympics, Fred Pappoe aka ‘Papsay’ has declared his desire to contest for the vacant Ghana Football Association presidency.

Pappoe is looking to stage a comeback into leadership position at the federation following his exit from the Executive Committee in 2015.

“I will pick my nomination forms at the right time,” he told the media at the Extra Ordinary Congress held at the Physicians and Surgeons Hall at Ridge in Accra.

“My records are there for everyone to see, I won’t sleep on it, I won’t be complacent.

“I will be a listening president not only to football people but the whole of Ghana,” he insisted.

Currently, the Association is being run by a Normalisation Committee appointed by FIFA following Anas’ Number 12 documentary.

The committee is expected to round up its work with fresh elections scheduled in the coming weeks.

Pappoe was deputy to Kwesi Nyantakyi during his first term and also served as chairman of the Black Stars management committee.
