Ghana FA boss Kurt Okraku shows gratitude to NSA over withdrawal of stadium user charges

    The President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku has hailed the decision of the National Sports Authority (NSA) to withdraw the new stadium user charges which drew much furor among football clubs and stakeholders.

    Reacting to this, the Ghana FA boss, Kurt Okraku who vocal in expressing displeasure at the initial fees, has taken to social media to express his gratitude to the NSA for giving the football ‘people’ the listening ear and paying heed to their grievances.
