Kwesi Nyantakyi’s tenure as the President of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] is about to end, but his decision to seek for a re election after his reign in 2019 has been difficult to predict as the CAF 1st Chairman seems to be in a state of dilemma.
In his latest interview, the GFA President sounded unconvincing when asked whether he was going to lace down his boots at the end of his tenure in 2019 or not.
“Somewhere, somehow I will quit. I believe that a time will come where I’ll put down my tools, take off my shoes and probably put on a different boots,” Mr. Nyantakyi stammered.
“I have announced already that I will not seek re election after the end of my tenure,” he added.
Kwesi Nyantakyi who was voted into power in 2005 having defeated Ade Coker and Kojo Bonsu has led Ghana to three consecutive FIFA World Cups – Germany 2006, South Africa 2010, as well as Brazil 2014.
Despite his achievements, Mr. Nyantakyi’s diminished in 2014 when he and other four officials at the GFA were fingered in an alleged match fixing scandal by The Telegraph and Channel 4, but the Ghana FA President denied that allegations saying the report was not accurate.
Besides the Ghana Football Association, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi has held various international positions including; President of the West Africa Football Union [WAFU] – zone B, Football organizer – 2012 Olympic Games [London], Member of FIFA Associations Committee, FIFA Council Member, Vice President of the Confederation of Africa Football [CAF], amongst others.
