George Afriyie challenges disqualification in GFA elections

George Afriyie, the former Vice President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), is poised to pursue his case as a final recourse by seeking resolution through the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and the National Independent Tribunal.

This decision follows the recent ruling by the Appeals Committee, which affirmed the GFA Elections Committee’s decision to disqualify George Afriyie from participating in the GFA Presidential elections.

In an exclusive interview with the media, George Afriyie’s legal representative, Esq. Richmond Saaka, disclosed that his client is fully committed to exploring all available avenues to address this matter.

“I have instructions from the client [George Afriyie], the instructions are based on the advice he has been given and the advice is informed by the very same GFA statutes and regulations.

“The statutes and regulations say that you can file an appeal if you are not happy with a certain decision and then you can head to the Court of Arbitration for Sports or the National Independent Arbitration Tribunal to deal with (an) appeal that arises.

“So we believe that, per the rules of the GFA, these are available options, we will head to the Court of Arbitration for Sports or engage the National Independent Arbitration Tribunal to help us appeal the decision of the Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association because that is what the statutes of the FA provide.”

The original election date, initially scheduled for September 27, faces increased uncertainty due to a court injunction filed by King Faisal. Consequently, the hearing has been adjourned for the third time, with the new date set for September 28, 2023.
