Tension is brewing at the premises of the Ghana football Association following a reported clash on Tuesday between president Kwesi Nyantakyi and his vice George Afriyie during a meeting to sack the latter from his position, SportsObama.com has gathered
The Ghana FA boss is reported to have summoned an emergency meeting on Tuesday announcing his decision to sack Afriyie from his position as vice president, insisting he cannot work with the Okyeman Planners president again.
Mr Nyantakyi, a FIFA Executive council member is alleged to have questioned the loyalty of Afriyie on several counts, resulting in the former firing a damaging remarks in response, impugning among others, that he Nyantakyi is a “greedy man”.
Afriyie, who also doubles as the chairman of Black Stars, is alleged to have gone berserk following Nyantakyi’s decision, and told the CAF vice president to “take his FA” as he [Afriyie] is not interested again.
According to SportsObama.com sources, the Ghana FA boss, who is serving a third successive term in office, has informed the other FA bigwigs present to arrange an Executive committee meeting next week where he will appoint a new vice president for the federation.
There have been several media reports of a long standing feud between Nyantakyi and Afriyie in recent months
The two topmost officials of the GFA are reported to have not been in good relation as far as work is concern over issues of trust.
In January this year, there were reports that the GFA president had accused his lieutenant of aligning himself with the then Minister of Youth and Sports, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye who had been at loggerheads with the GFA boss.
George Afriyie, who wasn’t happy with the issues gave a hint of his intention to quit from his position at the Ghana FA.
However, some senior football administrators arranged a meeting at the Alisa Hotel and acted as arbitrators on the matter and settle it amicably.
George Afriyie after the meeting told Kumasi-based Kessben FM that “Everything has been resolved. Even If there were any misunderstanding they have been resolved,” he added.
But the latest fracas on Tuesday is believed to be the last straw on the camels back, as the supposed Executive Committee meeting next week could see the announcement of a new vice.
Attempts to reach the two topmost chiefs of the Ghana football association proved futile.
