Richard Kingson has paid glowing tribute to the late Jordan Anagbla describing his demise as a killer blow to the game in the country.
The Vice-President of the Ghana Fototball Association passed away at age 55 in Accra after a short illness last week Thursday.
In a press statement issued by the experienced Black Stars shot-stopper on Monday, he said the Nation has lost one of its finest football administrators.
“It is my prayer that all Ghanaians especially the football fraternity take a moment to reflect on the sterling qualities of leadership, patriotism, visionary, commitment and dedication to duty that characterized Mr Anagbla’s life and imbibe these in our diverse field of endeavours as we strife to make Ghana Football what we all dream of,”
“It s certain that all footballers that ever worked with Jordan Anagbla have one thing in common: our admiration of a man who never quits until the job is done. He sees opportunity where we all see problems.
“I have known Jordan for many years. I would like to say thanks for being a man of action and not just words.
“Indeed, the Nation has lost one of its finest football administrators,”
Meanwhile the family of the late Anagblah and the Ghana Football Association have announced plans for the one-week commemoration of his death.
The event will be held on Thursday 21st June, 2012 at Alhaji Seidu Park at Madina (Nsamanpom) in Accra.
His enthusiasm for the game and energy were the source of countless successes that Ghana football has chalked in recent years.
