No fears: I don’t want to go unoppose – Nyantakyi

With the countdown to the 2015 GFA Congress and elections ever urging closer to the D-day, Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi says he is not afraid of competition for the the upcoming Ghana FA presidential elections.

The current term of Nyantakyi runs out in less than a year and the GFA will be going to the polls l to elect new executives with the presidency of the association also up for grabs.

Nyantakyi told Happy FM that he doesn’t want to go unopposed and invited football administrators to contest with him for for the presidency.

‘I don’t want to go unopposed. If it turns out that I stand alone, then I will urge for people to be begged to come and contest.”

‘Competition brings the best out of a person so I am open to such competitions.

‘He [Randy Abbey] first of all has the right to contest just like anyone who is eligible to.

Nyantakyi has held the fort in charge of the administration of Ghana football since stepping in as interim Chairman following the resignation of Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe in 2005, taking the position full time following an historic Congress and elections under the tutelage of world football governing body, FIFA.

Football administrator Vincent Sowah Odotei and female coach Ofiebea Ramatu have so far confirmed their intention to contest against incumbent Nyantakyi.

Executive Committee member Randy Abbey is yet to publicly express his interest in the GFA Presidency, but pressure groups in the country have openly declared their support for the astute Football Administrator.
