As many as 11-members from the Ghana Premier League, have filed their nominations to contest for the upcoming 2023 Ghana Football Association Executive Council elections.

Out of the 18-teams in the Ghanaian elite division, eleven representatives have availed themselves to seek elections amongst them, is Medeama SC board member and management member Tony Aubynn. He was elected unto the Executive Council in 2019 September, when Kurt Okraku resumed office as GFA President.

Tony Aubynn is seeking for re-election and has filed his nomination.

In an interview, he disclosed why he is seeking to be given another opportunity on the Executive Council. Emphasising that the current leadership has unfinished business even after four years.

“The current executive council has started a journey,” Aubynn told Citi Sports following his vetting.

“That journey is reachable. We haven’t reached that journey. And so if you have the capacity to support for yet another term, you should be able to do that. I think there are a lot of things that need to be done.”

“You need to do it at a certain level and then you can then give it to someone else to also push. You cannot stay there forever. But whilst you are strong, mentally fit, physically capable to contribute, it’s all sacrificial.

“I mean, generally this is not a piece of work that gives you any financial returns, but sometimes you get insults.”

“But once you are committed to making contribution to the sport that you love, anyone who goes into this area has a passion, is driven by passion. All of us are driven by passion. And so we are going to contribute our quota to bringing Ghana football up again.”

Current Executive Council Members, Dr. Randy Abbey, Fred Acheampong, Nana Oduro Sarfo, and Kingsley Osei Bonsu are seeking election.

Others in contention are Former Black Stars Head Coach, James Kwesi Appiah Onyina Asenso, Edmund Ackah, Raphael Gyambrah, Elloeny Amande, and Alhaji Moro Akambi.
