Former FA Vice President [George Afriyie] looked downtrodden having heard the results of the GFA Presidential elections on Friday, October 25 which saw Kurt E.S Okraku being announced the winner.
Mr. Okraku, a member of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana secured 44 votes in the first round of voting with George Afriyie coming close with 40 votes whiles Nana Yaw Amponsah and Fred Pappoe got 27 and 6 votes respectively.
In the second round of the elections Mr Kurt Okraku missed the required 50% plus one by just two votes after he secured 59 votes whiles George Afriyie got 43 votes with Nana Yaw Amponsah also earning 16 votes.
The election was then thrown into a third round of voting in accordance with the GFA Statutes and to elect a winner who can cross the 50 plus one mark.
Mr George Afriyie, however, as a sign of true sportsmanship announced his decision to pull out from the race and congratulated the eventual winner – Mr. Kurt Okraku.
