Vice president of the Ghana Football Association, George Akwasi Afriyie urged Kwesi Nyanatkyi to be a man of his words.

The country's football governing body head president has repeatedly said that he will not seek for re-elections in 2019 when his term in office expires after assuming office in December 2005.

But after George Afriyie declared his intention to contest for the Ghana FA presidency in 2019, some Executive Committee Members of the Ghana Football Association has lambasted.

They, however, insisted that they will force the CAF 1st vice to rescind his decision and seek for a 5th term in office.

However, the Liberty Professionals director has warned the Wa All Stars owner to be a man of his words.


"Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi is the President of Ghana Football Association, First vice president of CAF and a FIFA Executive council member. He granted an interview to Graphic Sports, Joy FM and Vision 1 FM all on three different occasions and said he’s not standing for elections again,'' he told Nhyira FM on Monday.

"What I want everybody to understand is that those were his words. If he changes his mind tomorrow with the word trust in the bracket of the man of his stature, he knows the consequences.''

"A man of his stature as a lawyer, if you say something on three occasions and you later change your mind you lose the trust people have for you."
