Kofi Manu slams calls for limits to Ghana FA president term
Outspoken football administrator Kofi Manu has squashed suggestion to limit the terms of the president of Ghana Football Association.
A two-day seminar by eminent administrators recommended that there should be a modification of the football constitution saying the term of the president should be limited to two-terms
The constitution currently allows the sitting president to contest for re-election once the four-year-term expires.
Manu believes the idea by the sports gurus is implausible.
“Do you know how many people since 1992 have been in parliament? Why would they not reduce the term in Parliament to two? I don’t know how people even reason,” he told Joy Sports.
“Some people have been in Parliament since 1992 to this day, you say the FA president should go two times [terms].
“Why don’t they legislate that the President of the republic of Ghana has two terms so every MP has two terms, what are they talking about?
“Have they not forgotten that it’s an association? We decide what we want to do in the association as long as it doesn’t conflict with the laws of the land.”
