Gor Mahia Chief Executive Officer Lordvick Aduda has entered the race for the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Presidency saying that his move has been inspired by an endorsement from stakeholders.
Aduda has been coy over his bid to oust the incumbent Nick Mwendwa in the polls set for December 7 but yesterday he said his decision had been informed by the pressure from football stakeholders.
The FKF elections are slowly gathering pace with the list of candidates interested in the top seat now standing at four. Apart from Aduda, others are former Vihiga County governor, Moses Akaranga and former FKF boss Sam Nyamweya. Aduda’s last stint with the governing body ended on a sour note.
The former FKF CEO, who was ejected out of office in 2012, has been a fierce critic of the current regime which assumed office in February 2016.
Aduda has been on record questioning the selection of players to the national team, the calibre of foreign coaches mandated to manage Harambee Stars and how the accounts department has been spending both the Fifa grants and funding from the government.
Yesterday, Aduda formally declared his interest in the top seat and further said that his manifesto will be disclosed to the public soon.
“Football stakeholders feel that time is up for me to take up the leadership mantle. I have accepted their challenge and endorsement and I will give it a shot. I will be releasing my manifesto soon.”
