Kurt Okraku- President of the Ghana Football Association, says his administration is keen on improving the standard of the Ghana Premier League.
The Ghana Premier League just like other football related activities in the country have been suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The future of the league season in Ghana remains uncertain despite calls by many football fanatics in the country for the resumption of the 2019/2020 season.
The Ghana FA, recently announced that it has begun processes to play an autonomous league and have since formed a committee to come up with the modalities, processes and roadmap for the establishment of an autonomous Ghana Premier League.
Speaking on Germany-based Topical Radio, Kurt Okraku mentioned that making the Ghana Premier league autonomous is part of the measures taken by his administration to improve football in the country.
“It is the target of the FA to improve our league and that is why we have decided to play an autonomous league. In this case, organizers of the league will have free hands to work”, Kurt Okraku told Germany-based radio station Topical Radio.
“Again, our decision to change the refereeing structure is a step in the right direction. We want to hunt for talented referees and make them better. So going forward, I think we are going to get a better league under my term”.
