Two-time African champions Asante Kotoko have strongly expressed their backing for the former Ghana FA Vice President with Chief Executive Officer George Amoakoh announcing on Kumasi-based Otec FM the club will vote for George Afriyie.
“We [Kotoko representatives] have been to any of the manifesto launch of the various presidential hopefuls. We have heard a whole lot about their policies with their manifestos, but George Afriyie’s own stands tall amongst his competitors,” Amoako said on a tape aired by Otec FM.
“And we don’t endorse a candidate for endorsing sake. I George Amoako being the CEO of kotoko has been given the mandate to endorse the candidature of George Afriyie,” he added.
He continued: ” So, we (Asante Kotoko) have endorsed George Afriyie and that will be same in the elections having been convinced by his policies with his manifesto.”
