Afriyie concedes but Okraku’s declaration stalls

George Afriyie [L] conceded before the elections headed to the final round
Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) Vice President George Afriyie has conceded defeat in the presidential elections in Accra despite it heading to a third round.

Mr Afriyie said: “In the interest of football, I concede defeat and I congratulate my brother.”

But after extensive consultations, officials decided to continue with the third and final round of voting.

Kurt Okraku had won all the elections on the day, making inroads with each round of voting.

Despite polling 44 votes in the first round, the Dreams FC owner gained 15 more votes in the second round to get 59 votes.

Mr Afriyie, on the other hand, had three votes more than the 40 he had in the first round.

The winner was required to get 50 per cent plus one vote to meet the mandatory requirement to head the country’s football governing body.
