Kurt Okraku , incumbent president of the Ghana Football Association and George Afriyie were the main contenders of the 2019 GFA Presidential elections.
The duo are getting ready to once again face off in the upcoming elections of the association and it is expected to be more tense than what we witnessed four years ago.
Afriyie , a former vice president of the soccer governing body of the country , is poised to return to the GFA and has vowed to do better than what Kurt and his team have offered.
Both submitted their forms on Friday August 11th with the elections scheduled to take place in Tamale on September 27th.
Mr Kurt E.S Okraku was elected as president of the Ghana Football Association on 24th October 2019.
Mr Okraku secured votes in the third round of the elections which was held at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Accra.
The former sports journalist secured 44 votes in the first round of voting with George Afriyie coming close with 40 votes while 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 announced his decision to pull out from the race and congratulated Mr Kurt Okraku.
However, a third round of voting was held with Mr Kurt Okraku as the sole candidate which saw him secure 93 votes to emerge as the winner of the elections.
