The Porcupine Warriors chief insists he deserves to be voted the new vice president of the football association until 2023
Asante Kotoko chief executive officer George Amoako has availed himself for the vacant Ghana FA vice president role.
The 56-year-old was voted as one of the newly elected executive Council members of the football association and has revealed that he wants to deputise new president Kurt Okraku despite interest from Frederick Acheampong, Randy Abbey and Tony Aubyn.
“It is true that I want to become the new vice president. I have high interest in that position and I’m going to contest for it” Amoako told Atinka FM.
‘There is nothing like assurance when it comes to football elections, we are all friends, so it will be very hard for a delegate to tell you in the face that, I’m not going to vote for you. Only few will be truthful to their words because almost everybody will assure you of his or her vote but that’s where ‘fear delegates’ mantra comes in,” he added.
Amoako, however, added that he wasn’t surprised to have witnessed favourite George Afriyie losing the presidential elections to Kurt Okraku in two rounds.
“I was not surprised George Afriyie lost the elections. Most people tipped him to win but you see the ‘fear ‘delegates’ comes into play and that’s what exactly happened.
