Although a reason was not revealed, it’s believed the decision is due to George’s interest in the GFA presidency.
There have been a bad relationship between George Afriyie and his boss Nyantakyi since he declared his intentions to contest for the 2019 FA Presidency during his 50th birthday anniversary.
According to Afriyie, his decision was as a result of Kwesi Nyantakyi claiming that he would not seek re-election.
However, sources close to the GFA President have it that he was unhappy with Afriyie’s decision especially because his (Nyantakyi’s) first wife was at the ceremony where Afriyie declared his intentions.
The presence of Mrs Nyantakyi was interpreted as an endorsement by her husband, something which, clearly, was not the case.
It is widely rumoured that the Chief Executive Officer of Hasaacas, Nana Bayin Eyison is likely to take over the vice presidency of the GFA.
