Caf to elect Nyantakyi replacement Sept. 30

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) will, on September 30, elect a new first vice-president at an Extraordinary Congress to replace Kwesi Nyantakyi who resigned following corruption allegations.

The Ghana Football Association boss resigned on Friday June 8, after the Government of Ghana announced that it was taking steps to dissolve the local football governing body, and when Fifa handed him a provisional 90-day ban hours later.

“An Extraordinary Congress will be held on 30 september 2018 in Egypt to fill the vacancy on the FIFA Council for the english-speaking linguistic group following the resignation of Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi as both Fifa Council Member and CAF 1st Vice-president,” Caf wrote on its website.

Nyantakyi was captured receiving $65, 000 in renowned undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative piece, Number 12. The Fifa council member led Ghana football from May 2005 till 7th June 2018.  However, he has denied any wrong doing but apologized for “indiscretion.”

The 50-year-old football administrator has pledged to address the media in the coming days on the issues raised in the publicized documentary.

Kwesi Nyantakyi, was president of the Ghana Football Association, First Vice at Caf, a Fifa Council member, Fifa Associations Committee member and President of Wafu Zone B.

The Caf Extraordinary Congress is scheduled for Cameroon.
