Ghana Football Association vice president George Afriyie has been relieved of his position by the body’s Executive Committee after only three years in office.
The 50-year-old, who succeeded Frederick Pappoe in 2015, last month announced his intention to run for the presidency in 2019, following Nyantakyi's declaration not to seek a reelection when his tenure ends.
However, Afriyie's announcement didn't go down well with his boss and Goal understands there was a chaos at the Executive Committee's last sitting a fortnight ago, with a section of members proposing a vote of no confidence in him.
Athough, Afriyie was in Kumasi on Monday when Caf president Ahmad Ahmad arrived in the city to pay a courtesy call on the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II, he was not seen among the delegates.
