Nyantakyi will contest 2019 GFA elections - Palmer
Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer has disclosed that Kwesi Nyantakyi will seek re-election as president of Ghana FA when his current mandate expires in 2019.
Although Nyantakyi has reiterated on a number of occasions that he would not contest in the upcoming elections after becoming the association's chief in 2005 when he replaced Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe.
Osei Palmer strongly asserts that CAF’s 1st Vice President will change his mind because he still has the backing of the majority at the FA.
“Kwesi Nyantekyi will seek for re-election, I can say that for a fact”
“Between 70 to 80% of the people at the GFA support Kwasi Nyantakyi”
He also condemned Vice President George Afriyie for coming out publicly to declare his intention to contest the elections without consulting his boss.
“The timing is not right for anyone to declare his intention of contesting for FA president”
“The place where George made his declaration was wrong, he ambushed the people who went there”
“I can say on authority that George Afriyie did not consult president Nyantakyi before taking his decision”
“George Afriyie should apologize to EXCO for his declaration “
