George Afriyie, GFA Presidential aspirant. 

One of the leading aspirants of the Ghana football presidential election, Mr. George Afriyie is confident of winning the election despite being absent in yesterday's maiden edition of the GFA presidential debate.

The former vice president travelled to Turkey for a business proposed deal, leaving him out of the debate.

In an interview with Mr. Afriyie, he was confident his absence will not change the minds of the delegates for voting against  him.

"I actually had to travel to Turkey to meet a couple of business partners, unfortunately, my time of travelling and that of the debate crushed, I have informed the NC and they have understood to let me go. Well, I'm not sure my absence will cause any harm, I have said it before, I trust my delegates, I know they will vote for me when the time of election comes. Debate or no debate, I will win the election, my opponents even know I'm the best amongst us. He noted.

Senior sports Journalist, Gary Al Smith in his post analysis opined that, George Afriyie should not worry about other aspirants' presentation on the night since nothing convincing was said by all the five delegates present but had to maintained that, it was a fine opportunity he (George Afriyie) missed to further sell out his ideas particularly,  to the cooperate entities and Ghanaians in general.

"He was not at the debate because he had a prior arrangement in Turkey. The former GFA Veep should not be too bothered about the quality of ideas presented.

Nothing earth-shattering was said, and yet...

And yet, in the context of presenting himself to the larger Ghanaian populace - particularly, corporate entities - on this platform, he has missed a fine opportunity."

Other aspirants present at the debate include Ms. Amanda Clinton, Fred Pappoe, Nana Yaw Amponsah, Kurt Okraku and George Ankoma.

Barring no hitches, the election is scheduled to come off on October 25 this month.
