However, before Ghana attained independent the first united football association in the Gold Coast had John Darkwah as its Chairman and Richard Akwei as its Vice Chairman.
But after government took over the appointment of the heads of the Ghana Football Association in the early 1960s, the appointment of the Vice President seized to exist.
It resurfaced in the early 1990s after the Organisation's of Ghana League Clubs Association (OGLA) now Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) pushed for a Vice Chairman now Vice President to be appointed from the clubs.
That was the reason why the Vice Chairman of GHALCA doubled as the Vice Chairman of the GFA.
During the tenure of Awuah Nyamekye as GFA President OGLA's Vice Chairman in the person of Prof. Kofi Kumador automatically became his Vice Chairman
But after his reign Joe Lartey didn't have a Vice Chairman, due to crisis in the football administration at the time.
The practice of having OGLA or GHALCA Vice Chairman continued for years and even Kwesi Nyantakyi, the longest serving GFA President benefited from that.
As GHALCA Vice Chairman in 2004, he automatI assumed the second in command position in the GFA.
And when his boss Nyaho Tamakloe was ousted from officer by football administrators the former Wa All Stars boss won the elections that followed in December, 2005.
