September 12, 2023

I extend my warm compliments to all members of our dear football fraternity and the general Ghanaian public.

I wish to bring to your notice that I have successfully filed my appeal against the decision of the Elections Committee which declared my application to contest for the Ghana Football Association Presidential seat as unsuccessful.

The statement of intent of appeal was filed on Friday, September 8, 2023, via email which included a notice of filing a supplementary case.

Our legal representatives arrived at the secretariat of the GFA around 3:00 PM to file the hard copies of the supplementary case.

Upon arrival at the entrance of the GFA Headquarters, they were blocked by security men from entering the premises to carry out the exercise. It is interesting to note that my lawyers were informed that they have direct instructions not to allow them to enter the premises.

Despite the patience and persistence of our legal team to enter the premises to file the hard copies of the supplementary case, they were blocked. I had to call on the support of one of my personal assistants, Isaac Wilberforce Koomson, to assist in getting the documents accepted by the receptionist of the GFA.

I devote my heartfelt gratitude to gallant members of the media, the watchdogs of freedom of expression and fairness, who widely reported the use of Machoism and Machiavellianism to frustrate the process of filing our appeal.

I urge all my followers and supporters to remain calm as we go through the process to reverse the arbitrary decision of the Elections Committee.

Thank you.

George Afriyie
