Incumbent Ghana Football Association President, Kurt Okraku has vowed to smoke a peace pipe with George Afriyie following his re-election on Thursday during the Elective Congress in Tamale.
The former Vice President of the football association quest to contest Kurt Okraku was dashed after being disqualified by the Elections Committee who cited his inability to provide the required number of signatures to support his candidacy.
Okraku received a resounding vote of confidence to lead the country’s football for another four years in Tamale.
The endorsement came during the GFA Elective Congress held at the Global Dream Hotel in Tamale, where Okraku stood unopposed following the disqualification of George Afriyie.
Out of the 124 delegates eligible to vote, a total of 120 delegates participated in the election. The overwhelming support for Okraku was evident, with 117 delegates voting “YES” in favour of his continuation, while only three voted “NO.”
“We can only build the Ghanaian game when we stay together. Everyone has a role to play in the game including my brother, George Afriyie. I will reach out to George and bring him back home. so George, wherever you are, we are one” he said after retaining his seat.
