Renowned and illustrious editor of footballmadeinghana.com, Tophic Abdul Kadir Sienu has been elected a member of the newly constituted Division One League Management Committee as a representative of zone 2 of the division one league.
The celebrated sports journalist earned the spot to serve on the eight-member committee after beating competition from others in the elections on Wednesday in Accra.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) asked the three zones of the division one league to elect two two representatives from each zone in addition to the Chairman and vice who were appointed by the FA to complete the eight-member committee.
Out of the 16 clubs in the zone two, 13 were present at the meeting and 6 persons contested for the two slots available, making the election keenly contested. At the end of the elections, Tophic Abdul Kadir Sienu deservedly won one of the two slots while Justice Boison grabbed the other.
The industrious ace sports writer and broadcaster, a former editor of 442gh.com Tophic, is by far a gateway to a new direction for not only zone two division one league, but also a vessel through which innovative ideas could be sought for implementation to take grass root football to a greater height.
Unlike zone two, the zone 1 and zone 3 clubs unanimously agreed to appoint persons from the zones to represent them on the committee instead of electing. Jones Abu Alhassan – Zone 1, David Obeng- Zone 1, Gideon Fosu – Zone 3, Eugene Noel – Zone 3 were eventually appointed to represent them.
The GFA appointed Media Consultant Akwasi Agyeman as Chairman of the Division One League Committee while Kenneth Thompson, the CEO of Dalex Finance will be the Vice Chairman.
Below is the full list of the members of the Division One League Management Committee:
Akwasi Agyemang- Chairman
Kenneth Thompson- Vice Chairman
Jones Abu Alhassan – Zone 1
David Obeng- Zone 1
Tophic Kadir Sienu – Zone 2
