Former Chief Executive Officer of Bono Ahafo United Ransford Antwi has attacked Ghana FA President Kurt Okraku and General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo in the aftermath of the release of the controversial decision on the B/A United and Real Tamale United landmark case.
Antwi, who has gone public to declare his support for his rival club Bofoakwa Tano in their quest for Ghana Premier League promotion, has been left disappointed by latest events.
On Thursday evening the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana FA declared Real Tamale United winners of the matchday 27 clash with B/A United at the Coronation Park in Sunyani which ended abruptly.
The ruling has left RTU, 62 points and just 2 within reach of leaders Bofoakwa Tano, in pole position to secure promotion to the Ghanaian top-flight.
Bofoakwa Tano have a cagey clash with another promotion-chasing Berekum Arsenal at the Golden City Park on Sunday and must win to stand a chance to finishing the season as table-toppers. Bofoakwa’s promotion hopes is hanging on the line as there is a pending petition at the Discipline Committee against the Sunyani-based club for fielding a player with an alleged multiple identity.
Antwi believes the current Ghana FA administration is working in the interest of RTU against other clubs from Zone I especially clubs within the Bono regions.
He wrote on Facebook:
“I went to bed in tears and woke up in tears… I’ve never felt this way… Shame on the GFA led by Kurt Okraku, Prosper Harrison, etc… Your way of managing football in Ghana may lead to a massive scar on our country, that desperately needs peace and unity to develop… Your determination to ensure that RTU qualifies to the premiership, by hook or crook has led to an unprecedented dispensing of selective justice, biases, arm-twisting, in the history of Ghana Football.
To the politicians who are hiding behind the FA, and influencing decisions, my message to you is BONOMAN never forgets… We are digital in documenting those who have caused us pain. You’ve destroyed our region under the guise of bringing to us massive development, BONOMAN WILL NEVER FORGET. You’ve deliberately denied us development, capitalizing on our lack of unity, and our politicians selling us cheap. Your desire to cheat us has rather brought us together, something that’s been lacking in the past. Yes, we know some of our people love their parties more than their region but thank God, they’re not in the majority.
Unfortunately, times are really changing and the politicians behind such decisions are the ones who’ll suffer big time…. The fact that supporters of BA United, Aduana, Berekum Chelsea, Techiman Eleven Wonders, Bechem United etc. are contributing to help Bofoakwa’s qualification drive, should send the right signal that indeed times have changed. So your quest to bring happiness to your people should lead to tears and despair for others? Come on, Mr. Politician…
