He appealed for justice but no, it didn’t hold.

He can not run the race due to his ineligibility having had his appeal dismissed by the appeals Committee of the Elections Committee.

Speaking in an interview, a club owner and member of George Afriyie’s camp team Abdul Salam Yakubu disclosed that they were expecting the outcome of the verdict to go against George Afriyie, therefore ain’t surprised.

However, GFA President Kurt Okraku should stop exhibiting this attitude and stop creating enemies amongst football people.

Adding that, if the GFA Presidentt wants to create enemies, they can make it possible.

“If you want to create fight between us, fine. Do you [Kurt Okraku] want us to be serious enemies?

“We will form our GFA if Kurt and his associates continue to exhibit such disrespectful conducts” – Abdul Salam Yakubu on the dismissal of George Afriyie’s appeal told Prof. E.K Wallace on Asempa FM SportNite.

Meanwhile, it’s unclear whether George Afriyie will visit higher judicial body over his disqualification from the GFA Presidential race.
