Son of Ghana FA Technical Director Francis Oti Akenteng, who is a prophet, has prophesised victory for George Afriyie in the 2019 GFA Presidential race.
The CAF AFCON Organising Committee kingpin’s stock keep rising as his popularity soars among congress members and delegates of the Ghana FA.
Afriyie has previously revealed a cracked squad featuring seasoned football administrators, ex-footballers, coaches and referees to mount his campaign agenda as he seeks to ascend the GFA top seat.
And, latest to endorse the former FA Vice President is Osofo Peter who has revealed the intelligent and well-connected administrator is backed by divine means to win the elections.
“For now, I can emphatically say that George Afriyie is person to ascend to the highest position of football in Ghana in the realms of the spirit if nothing changes,” Sofo Peter told Kumasi-based Sports Express on Royal TV.
The renowned football administrator is regarded by all and sundry as the right candidate to lead Ghana football. Football fans in the Bono, Bono East and Ahafo regions unanimously picked the former Ghana FA Vice President as their choice to lead Ghana during a voting contest organised by Sunyani-based Nimdie FM last week.
The CAF AFCON Organising Committee kingpin spent hours at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday to encourage young ambitious footballers who played in the Greater Accra Regional Football Association Special Competition at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Attram De-Visser FC emerged champions of the Greater Accra Regional Football Association Special Competition after beating Charity Stars 5-4 on penalties after the 90 minutes ended goalless.
Afriyie, former Ghana FA Juvenile Committee Head, presented medals to players and officials who part-took in the competition and seized the opportunity to assure players, administrators and fans of his commitment to developing and promoting grassroots football in the country.
He has worked with renowned football politicians and administrators across the globe through his football networking experience and connects at various Associations, Federations and Confederations governing the game.
