ACCRA, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- Ghana's Minister for Youth and Sports, Isaac Kwame Asiamah, has urged Ghana Football Association president Kurt Okraku and his executive council to be innovative in order to win back the love of football fans.

Speaking to the GFA, Asiamah tasked the association with reviving the game on the domestic front, as well as improving the national teams.

"Your election places huge responsibilities on you to rebrand Ghanaian football, and as you say, ignite passion," he told the GFA delegation that paid him a courtesy call.

"So far, what I have seen gives me an indication of a positive future," the minister added.

He advised the federation to strive not to repeat recent mistakes that have plunged the country's football into crisis, with the 2017/18 season being canceled amid allegations of corruption and breaches of FIFA's code of conduct.

Okraku and the executive council were elected during the FA's extraordinary congress in Accra last month.

The new administration will serve for the next four years.
