President of New Edubiase United Abdul Salam Yakubu has tipped well-branded George Afriyie to win the 2019 Ghana Football Association presidential elections ‘hands down’ taking into consideration the strength of all his contenders.
Many names have popped up for the top job, which includes former Ghana FA vice capo Fred Pappoe, Dreams FC’s owner Kurt Okraku, GHALCA Chief Kudjoe Fianoo and Tema Youth’s bankroller Winfred Osei Kwaku Parma.
Abdul Salam, however asserted that, despite all the names that has sprung up deserve the role, it is the former Ghana FA vice president George Afriyie who stands tall due to his role in helping the growth of the game in the country.
He made this comment during an interview with Germany-based Topical Radio.
“George Akwasi Afriyie is ahead of all persons who have popped up for the GFA Presidential race” He confidently stated.
According to him, the mere fact that Mr. Afriyie is not making ‘noise’ in the media and also making incessant donations does not mean he’s asleep and doing nothing momentous to ensure he occupies the vacant Ghana FA top seat.
‘’The fact that he’s not talking on radio or making donations does not mean he is not working. He will come out at the right time.‘’
‘’What is written is written. When the elections are conducted today, he George will win hands down to come and continue the good works of Kwesi Nyantakyi.’’
