President Nana Akufo-Addo has taken to Twitter to congratulate Justice Anin Yeboah who has been elected as the new chairman of FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee.
Justice Yeboah was confirmed on Thursday at the FIFA Congress in Bahrain after polling 98 percent of the votes.
Akufo-Addo is of no doubt he will excel because he “deserves” the position:
Congratulations to Supreme Court Judge, Justice Anin Yeboah, on being elected chairman of FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee. Well deserved!!
