Executive Council voted against Kwesi Appiah contract renewal – Kurt Okraku reveals



President of the Ghana FA Kurt E.S. Okraku has revealed that the decision not to renew the contract of Kwasi Appiah was not his personal decision but was a collective decision of the entire Executive Council.

The GFA in December last year decided not to renew the contract of the Ghanaian coach after two and a half years with the Black Stars.

According to Kurt Okraku, it sounds disrespectful to say he single-handedly took the decision not to renew the contract of Kwesi Appiah.

“It will be most unfortunate because it could sound like a disrespect to all the twelve members on the Executive Council and other stakeholders who were engaged before that singular decision was taken,” he told Ghanaweb.

“We all know that we woefully didn’t perform at the AFCON, we all know the happenings from the Brazil 2014 World cup, we all know all the things that have happened before.

“So when the council put the motion into a vote, it was twelve out of twelve. A big NO!
“It was not about the president of the FA not wanting somebody,” Kurt Okraku concluded.
C K Akonnor has since been appointed to replace the former Asante Kotoko coach.
