The astute businessman polled 55% of the votes cast to seal a complete whitewash of his opponents to become Ghana football's second most powerful man.

The unassuming colossus annihilated his opponents by grabbing six of eleven votes of the Executive Council of the Ghana FA to become the man to assist GFA President Kurt Okraku on the mission of transforming the game in the country.

Dr Toni Aubynn got just one vote as Mark Addo captured the race by getting more votes than the two other candidates combined.

Addo will serve a four-year term alongside Kurt Okraku who gained the position two weeks ago.

He brings on board his massive experience, contacts and knowledge in the business world which is much needed at a time Ghana football needs big sponsors to spur the game in the country.

YEN.com.gh previously reported how Okraku was voted as the GFA president on October 25, 2019.
