George Afriyie, Kurt Okraku, Amanda Clinton, Nana Yaw Amponsah, Kojo Yankah, George Ankomah Mensah and Fred Pappoe, have filed their nominations to contest the Presidency of the Ghana Football Association.
The personalities were at the premises of the Ghana Football Association on Friday before the advertised 4pm deadline.
The candidates had earlier picked up their forms and they were to get support or endorsements from the various league clubs per the directive of the Normalisation Committee in relations to the elections.
For former GFA Vice-President, George Afriyie, he arrived at the FA’s offices with a huge following and that was captured in a video by Citi Sports’ Fentuo Tahiru.
On Thursday, Wilfried Osei, filed his nomination forms as well as Amanda Clinton.
Clinton’s interest in running the GFA has been seen by many as a surprise despite the fact that she is not uknown to the football fraternity as she was the lawyer for the GFA during the fallout of the Anas “Number 12” documentary.
According to her letter to the Vetting Committee of the GFA Normalisation Committee, she has been proposed by Accra Hearts of Oak.
Apart from the Presidential elections, there will be elections for places on the GFA’s Executive Council.
Chairman of King Faisal FC, Alhaji Karim Grusah filed his nomination for a spot on the Council.
The Council will guide the affairs of the FA together with the President and it will have 12 members in all made up of the President, 5 representatives of the Premier League clubs, 3 representatives of Division One Clubs, 1 representative of Women’s football and 2 representatives of the Regional FAs.
Those who have submitted their nomination forms will have their forms reviewed and those deemed to be fit or purpose will head to the vetting which takes place between September 26 and October 1.
The GFA Presidential elections take place on October 25.
