The Chief Executive Officer of 3G Media Inc., His Excellency, Charles N. Ntiamoah-Mensah (Mr. CNN) has thrown his support in favor of Kwesi Nyantakyi who is seeking re-election to the high office of the President of the Ghana football Association (GFA) . He cites the consistent participation of Ghana at the FIFA World cup the topmost reason for his support. “Since 2006, Ghana has been a regular at the world cup, and our participation has brought tremendous recognition to the brand of soccer Ghana plays.” It’s very ok for all to belong to separate and different camps, but the overriding qualification, is capacity and exposure, and he believes Mr. Nyantakyi is equipped thoroughly for delegates to once again entrust the leadership of Ghana’s most popular discipline into his “tried and tested arms”.
Kwesi Nyantakyi, a Banker and Lawyer prior to his association with Ghana football will be ten years in office in December but the 3G Mogul says, the number of years at the helm of football has been the most glorious years for Ghana football. “You remember when we tried times without number to qualify for the world cup without success” Players have never been our problem, Ghana is blessed with talents. It however takes an administrator that is skilled, has vision, and good human skills to elevate the sport and put it on its current pedestal. Under his stewardship the Black stars, whose ego had been shattered in prior years, has once again revived and is now once more a global soccer powerhouse. The Stars now command global attention and players of team play in the world’s most competitive leagues.
Another area of importance that needs commendation is the amount of corporate sponsorships that the team commands. “It did not just happen, his plan to make the team glamorous, is what makes all these companies excited to be sponsoring Ghana football. He added.
Mr. Nyantakyi has grown some clout in the world of football. He is now President of the sub regional body; WAFU and a member of both CAF and FIFA Associations committee. With his sterling qualifications and achievements believes it is only a matter of time before he is given a much bigger role in the world of football.
