The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has barred Mr. George Afriyie from running for president.
Mr. Afriyie’s vetting on Monday, August 21, was failed, according to a decision made by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Election Committee, which is chaired by Esq. Joseph Bernard Ashalley, on Wednesday night.
George Afriyie does have the option to challenge the judgment, but this must be done before to Monday, September 11, at 17:00 GMT.
The Elections Committee ruled that former GFA Vice President Afriyie’s screening procedure was failed for the following two reasons:
Failure to provide the required number of Ghana Football Association members to support your candidate
Failure to meet the requirements to contest the election for the position of GFA President due to having the support of four GFA members after the Jeffrey Asare’s endorsement rendered invalid.
The Redaach Memorial Hotel in Tamale planned to host the GFA Presidential Election this year on September 27, but it has been postponed because of legal concerns.
As a result of King Faisal FC of the Division One League filing an injunction to prevent the polls from taking place on the given date, the matter has been postponed until September 19.
Kurt Okraku, the current GFA President, is the only person vying for the position as of this writing.
Below is the GFA Election Committee’s ruling on George Afriyie.
