George Afriyie pays courtesy call on Chief Imam ahead of GFA elections

The presidential aspirant of the Ghana Football Association George Afriyie and his campaign team paid a courtesy call on National Chief Imam Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu at his Nima resident on Thursday, September 19, 2019.

The former Ghana FA vice capo and his campaign entourage visited the Sheikh to seek for his blessings, guidance, and counsel ahead of the 2019 GFA elections set for October 25.

The outspoken Liberty Professionals chief believes while it is true that the Chief Imam may not have a direct vote during the election, his influence, blessings, and guidance will be key to his aspirations of assuming the highest office of Ghana football.

Mr. Afriyie has in the past served on the prestigious Executive Committee, served as Black Stars Management Committee Chairman and also served as Vice President to Kwesi Nyantakyi before he was removed his post last year.

The delegation includes Lord Zico of Bechem United, Yakubu Abdul Salam, Alhaji Raji, Abukari Damba, Apostle Jeffrey Asare.

Mr. Afriyie is expected to face competition from other astute candidates such as Fred Papoe, Kurt Okraku, Nana Yaw Amponsah, and Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer.
