'The Western Regional Football Association Chairman, Kojo Yankah has described President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as a dictator.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, Yankah stated that some decisions taken by the president with respect to football in Ghana raises questions.
Speaking in an interview transcribed and posted by Sports Obama of Atinka Media, he said that it was wrong for the president to dissolve the Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
According to Yankah, some of them were voted for, and it is therefore wrong to remove them from office.
“I was voted for and I haven’t done anything wrong. What the government is doing is very dictatorial. If the president claims his government is democratic and yet tries to cheat innocent people, then he’s setting a bad precedence.
What the president is doing implies that we can also wake up one day and remove him from office without tangible reasons,” he stated.
The government, as part of moves to sanitize the football administration in the country following undercover investigations by Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, dissolved the Executive Committee of the GFA.
This move has angered a section of members who say the government is acting in violation of their fundamental human rights as elected members.
Yankah has previously accused the NPP government of unscrupulously trying to remove known NDC members in the GFA hierarchy to be replaced by NPP loyalists
