Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kurt Simeon-Okraku, has been elected to serve a four-year term as the President of the West Africa Football Union (WAFU).
Mr Simeon-Okraku, who was elected unopposed last Saturday, will head the sub-regional body for the next four years.
The election took place in Cote d’Ivoire during the General Assembly of the WAFU Zone B.
The Ghana FA boss had acted in the absence of Djibrilla Hima Hamidou of Niger, who stood down from the position last year.
The WAFU B General Assembly was attended by federation heads, CAF General Secretary, Veron Mosengo-Omba; and the General Secretaries of the seven football associations within the sub-region.
Accepting the new responsibility, Mr Simeon-Okraku urged the member associations to form a stronger collaboration to ensure the sub-region’s record as the hub and cradle for football on the continent was preserved.
