Ntow Fianko: Nyantakyi should not contest Ghana FA presidency again

Kwesi Nyantakyi

Former Division One League Board Chairman Kwame Ntow Fianko has urged Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi to vacate the seat when his current term ends in 2019.

According to the soft-spoken football administrator, the Nyantakyi has done enough for Ghana football hence the time has come for him to step aside for someone else to continue.

“Kwesi has done enough; he took Ghana to the world cup for the first time, he gave GFA an air-conditioned bus for the first time, he has achieved a lot as FA president. But he is a human and can go wrong. So I don’t see the reason why some people are saying he should contest again. If he asked me I will tell him there’s no need to come back,” He told Onua FM.

Fianko added, “In the FA presidency, the person who had the highest number of time in office aside Kwesi was Mr. H. P. Nyametei (1960–66) even Ohene Djan spent three years and Nana Fredua Mensah (1966–70). So Nyantakyi has had the highest number of years and he has also had landmark achievement. He completed the FA building from a FIFA fund.”

He recognized that though Nyantakyi’s administration has done a lot for the development of football in the country, some people have also misused some FIFA funds.

Nyantakyi has held several international positions in football. His appointments cut across sub regional, regional to the international state.

These include President of West African Football Union Zone B, Football organizer at the 2012 London Olympics, Member of FIFA Associations Committee, Member of the FIFA Council and Vice President of the Confederation of African Football.
