Aspiring Ghana Football Association (GFA) Presidential aspirant, George Akwasi Afriyie has disclosed that several efforts where made by security at the GFA headquarters to deny his legal representation entry.
On Monday, he filed his supplementary documents to his appeal over his disqualification by the GFA elections vetting Committee.
According to him, the security held them from filing their case as they seek to reverse the Elections Committee decision to disqualify him from contesting Incumbent Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku for the upcoming Elections.
In a statement released on Tuesday, George Afriyie indicated that he has successfully filed an appeal in addition to a supplementary case despite several attempts to “deny” his legal team from entering the premises of the GFA secretariat with the security claiming to be acting according to instructions.
“Despite the patience and persistence of our legal team to enter the premises to file the hard copies of the supplementary case, they were blocked. I had to call on the support of one of my personal assistants, Isaac Wilberforce Koomson, to assist in getting the documents accepted by the receptionist of the GFA.”
He however notes that, upon persistent tries, the supplementary case was successfully filed with a soft copy of the statement of intent of appeal already delivered via email last Friday.
While thanking his followers for their support, he further called upon them to be optimistic in the coming days as he anticipates a positive response.
“I devote my heartfelt gratitude to gallant members of the media, the watchdogs of freedom of expression and fairness, who widely reported the use of Machoism and Machiavellianism to frustrate the process of filing our appeal.
“I urge all my followers and supporters to remain calm as we go through the process to reverse the arbitrary decision of the Elections Committee.”
