REPRESENTATIVES of Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko have made strides into the Ghana Football Association’s Executive Committee.
Kotoko General Manager Opoku Nti managed nine votes and Frank Nelson, the Hearts of Oak Board member, polled eight votes.
The duo are among the six elected to serve a four-year term on the very powerful committee headed by Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi.
George Afriyie also retained his seat on the Ghana Football Association Executive Committee for Premier League clubs, with AshantiGold CEO Kudjoe Fianoo becoming the major casualty.
The Liberty Professionals official polled 11 votes which was the highest on the day to pick one of the six slots available for clubs in the Ghana top-flight.
He will serve another four-year term and retain his position as Black Stars management committee chairman.
Afriyie was joined by Inter Allies’ Delali Senaye, Frank Nelson, Albert Commey, Opoku Nti and Nanabenyin Eyison.
Fianoo, who won the Ghana Premier League with AshantiGold, failed in his bid to retain his seat after polling a paltry 4 votes.
