The Ghana Football Association has disqualified Mr. George Afriyie from running for president.
Kurt Okraku, the current President of the Ghanaian football regulatory body, is up for reelection. Kurt Okraku’s only opponent is Afriyie, a former vice president of the GFA.
Through his door-to-door campaign technique, Afriyie, who was formerly a member of CAF’s AFCON Organising Committee, has been gaining steadfast support from Ghana’s football community.
It has been discovered that a scheme was developed just days before Afriyie chose and submitted his candidacy papers to run for office.
Afriyie has been before the Vetting Committee and is awaiting the committee’s judgment. Afriyie introduced numerous changes to Ghanaian football in the early 2000s. A court order issued against the procedural body by Division One League team King Faisal has caused the procedure to stop.
The following is a quote from the vetting committee’s statement confirming this information:
“Dear George Kwasi Afriyie, Following the vetting process held on 21st August 2023 and after careful consideration, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Elections Committee (the“Committee”) regrets to inform you that your application to contest for the position of President of the GFA was unsuccessful.”
