Kwesi Nyantakyi and Ahmad

President of the Confederation of African Football, (CAF) Ahmad Ahmad, has motivated Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi to run for another term if he so wished, per the need for him by the people and stakeholders.

Mr Nyantakyi, who is Ahmad’s Vice-President, has been in office for three terms, since 2005.

He has said three times that he will not seek re-election after his current tenure ends, but there is speculation he is making a U-turn to maintain the seat that has propelled him to the top of African and world football.

Mr Ahmad told the media in Ghana “If the government, if people ask him to continue, then why must he stop? The people need him, the stakeholders need him so why must he not contest again.

“We are here to serve our Nation and service to your country comes first and so I will advise him to seek re-election.” He added.

Kwesi Nyantekyi era has seen Ghana qualifying to the FIFA World Cup three times in succession and the Ghana Under 20 winning the World Youth Cup for Africa for the first time.

His reign has also seen the rise of Female Football with Ghana qualifying for the world cup at Under 17 and Under 20 levels and faring very well.

Locally, he is applying every effort for sponsorship, as finance is the major problem of the Ghana Premier League and juvenile football.
