Nyantakyi was returned through popular acclamation for another four-year term of office after standing unopposed for Zone West B.
The elections took place at the CAF General Assembly in Cairo, Egypt.
The Ghana FA boss was first elected to the Committee in February, 2011, after polling 34 votes over Benin?s Anjorin Moucharafou’s 19.
Nyantakyi has been successful in qualifying the West African country to three successive FIFA World Cup finals and was instrumental in Ghana?s annexing of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt in 2009, the first by any African country.
He is the fifth Ghanaian to secure a place on the Executive Committee after Ohene Djan (1961-1966), Kobina Hagan (1961-1962), Nana Fredua Mensah (1968-1972) and Samuel Okyere (1990-1994). Enditem
