George Afriyie, who was Vice President of the Ghana Football Association, has put in his papers to run for President of the association.
Afriyie put in his candidacy at the GFA Secretariat. On Friday, August 11, not long after GFA president Kurt Okraku had filed his.
The two first ran for the seat four years ago, after the government of Kwesi Nyantakyi had been taken over by a FIFA-backed Normalization Committee.
In the second round of that election, George Afriyie and Nana Yaw Amponsah got 43 and 16 votes, respectively, while Kurt Okraku got 59 votes.
There is no sign that Nana Yaw Amponsah or any other candidate will run, so George Afriyie is the only one who can beat Kurt Okraku.
The Ghana Football Association has set September 27 in Tamale as the date for this year’s elections.
