George Afriyie ready to relinquish Black Stars job
The Vice President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) George Afriyie has affirmed his readiness to relinquish his role as the Management Committee Chairman of the Black Stars.
This issue resulted when Minister for Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah urged the Ghana Football Association to make the management committee of the Black Stars an independent body. Asiamah made mention of this at the Sports Ministry’s Meet the Press on Tuesday.
In an interview with the media he said, “I am ready to leave the Black Stars management Committee chairman post, it’ not exclusive to me,”
“I started serving at the GFA in 2006 as a member of the Division One league board, a member of the black meteors management committee with Randy Abbey as chairman before I rose to become the chairman of the CHAN team,”
“I’ve been Chairman of the Black Satellites, the juvenile committee chairman and now Black Stars management committee chairman. It’s not my bonafide property, position is not possession. It’s not for my father nor mother’s lineage, he added.
