Former Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has reportedly made the decision to enter the race for a position on the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Council.

According to sources, Appiah has chosen to contest for one of the available slots designated for the Ghana Premier League during the upcoming Elective Congress scheduled for September 27.

It is understood that Appiah plans to vie for the council seat representing Asante Kotoko, a move that capitalises on his current involvement in the club's daily operations.

While there has been no official announcement from Appiah himself, sources suggest that he has formally submitted his nomination for the position. This decision is said to have received the blessing of Asante Kotoko's owner, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Appiah's potential candidacy follows in the footsteps of George Amoako, who secured a seat on the Executive Council in the 2019 elections while he held the position of Chief Executive at Asante Kotoko.

Having managed the Black Stars in two separate spells, Appiah's return to active engagement in football has seen him take on the role of a technical director within the sport. This development emerged as part of his appointment to the Interim Management Committee established by Otumfuo to oversee Kotoko's affairs during a period without a board of directors and management structure.

Appiah's reported decision to seek a place on the GFA Executive Council reflects his desire to contribute to the football community's decision-making process, bolstered by his established reputation and the backing of influential figures. If his bid proves successful, Appiah's experience and aspirations could contribute significantly to the local football governing body's activities.
