“He [Afriyie] will work with some of the highly respected football administrators on the continent as South Africa FA chief Danny Jordaan is the first vice-president of the committee and Zimbabwe FA boss Phillip Chiyangwa working second vice-president,” the statement reads.
It is also mentioned that George Afriyie is the first Ghanaian official to earn a major CAF appointment since the election of Ahmad Ahmad as Africa’s governing body president, succeeding Issa Hayatou.
