GHANA Football Association vice-president Fred Crentsil has lost his seat on the powerful Executive Committee after Tuesday’s election for Division One League Clubs with Dreams FC president Kurt Okraku pulling the highest number of votes to cement his place in the 22-member team.
Crenstil, who was seeking a fresh four-year mandate on the ticket of Techiman City, failed to garner the required votes at a hotly contested election in the Ghanaian capital, Accra.
Kurt Okraku, a Liverpool University graduate, polled an impressive 35 votes, eight more than his closest challengers Wilfred Osei Parma (Tema Youth) and John Frederick Mensah (Ebusua Dwarfs) as well as Kweku Abaka Eyiah (Tarkwa United) who polled 25 votes.
Fred Crentsil could garner only 23 votes, which means he becomes the second biggest casualty after Ashantigold’s Kudjoe Fianoo.
There were no places for veteran football administrator Oloboi Commodore and Jones Abu Alhassan while ambitious Ebo Kwabena Appiah polled one vote.
Journalist Otuo Acheampong Barima Boada garnered 13 votes.
Ronald Joojo Duncan (Proud United) secured only two votes after a exhilarating contest held at the Ghana FA secretariat.
Kweku Abaka Eyiah (Tarkwa United) 25, Wilfred Kwaku Osei (Tema Youth) 27, John Frederick Mensah (Ebusua Dwarfs) 27, Fred Crentsil (Techiman City) 23, Ronald Joojo Duncan (Proud United) 2, Otuo Acheampong Barima Boadaa (Asokwa Deportivo) 13, Oloboi Commodore (Sporting Mirren) 12, Kurt E.S. Okraku (Dreams FC) 35, Ebo Kobina Appiah (KFC Samosa) 1 and Jones Abu Alhassan (RTU) 4.
