Berekum Chelsea backer Obed Nana Kwame Nketia is the latest football mogul to express an unwavering support for George Afriyie to become the next Ghana FA President.
Most club owners across the length and breadth of the country are expressing their backing for the CAF AFCON Committee member to lead football in the West African country.
Afriyie, former second-in-command of the Ghana FA, rounded up a campaign tour of the Brong Ahafo region on Thursday after meeting all the relevant stakeholders of football in the region.
The Brong Ahafo region is the biggest constituency in the Ghana FA Electoral College with 21 electorates drawn from the Ghana Premier League, Division One and the Regional Football Association.
Nketia has extolled the virtues of the 50-year-old visionary leader and described him as ‘Adepa’.
“Who doesn’t like a good thing? I know exactly what George Afriyie can do for Ghana football but I don’t know what the rest can do,” he told Ghana Sports Online in an exclusive interview.
Afriyie, on Thursday revealed names of four Ghanaian football heavyweights in his campaign team.
In the meet-the-press event that saw Brong Ahafo region club owners and voters mounting the high table in express demonstration of backing for the Okyeman Planners bankroller he revealed the names of four key members of his campaign team.
“I can reveal the names of some of my campaign team members to you. Lawyer Kwame Ntow Fiako is leading figure in my campaign and is one of my campaign managers together with Abdul Salam Yakubu,” he revealed.
“I will also reveal to you that Lawyer Kweku Eyiah is in charge of the finances for my campaign while Kingsley Osei Bonsu is a coordinator,” the former GFA vice president added
The revelation has obviously left opposition candidates bewildered over the influence wielded by the personalities named in the campaign team. Ghana Sports understands Afriyie has also garnered the backing of most football club owners across the country who will soon openly declare their support for the visionary leader.
