West Africa Football Union president, Kwesi Nyantakyi says he is like a ‘dead goat’ when it comes to elections.
The Ghana Football Association was re-elected president of WAFU Zone B in a fiercely contested election on Tuesday in Accra.
Nyantakyi beat Niger’s Djibrilla Hamidu by one vote in a close victory after, and after which the CAF executive committee claim he does not fear to run in any elections.
Kwesi Nyantakyi has won several elections ranging from the local level which includes GHALCA, GFA, WAFU to CAF.
The Lawyer and Banker who has been the first citizen of Ghana football for the past decade retained his position as the Ghana FA President in August 2015 unopposed.
The Wa All Stars bankroller was also re-elected to serve on Confederation of African Football’s (CAF) Executive Committee for another four-year term in office in April 2015 unopposed.
However at the WAFU Zone B elections, Nyantakyi was closely matched.
But he says he has adopted His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama’s ‘dead goat syndrome’ during elections.
“I am like a dead goat when it comes to elections,” Kwesi Nyantakyi told the media in Accra on Tuesday after winning the elections.
“I don’t fear elections. I have gone through several elections from GHALCA to GFA to CAF etc,” elated Nyantakyi added.
