A member of Ghana Football Association’s, powerful decision-making body, Executive Committee – Wilfried Osei Kwaku ‘Palmer’ has sensationally claimed that CAF President Ahmad Ahmad won’t seek re-election when his current term expires.
He went further to state that the ‘They’ are working to position current Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi to succeed him.
Kwesi Nyantakyi is the First Vice President of CAF.
“Ahmad Ahmad has said he will run for only one term so we want to position Kwesi [Nyantakyi] to succeed him,” he told Accra-based Asempa FM.
Ahmad has not made a public statement on whether he will seek re-election but the Vice Chairman of the Ghana Black Stars Management Committee claims he has said so.
Kwesi Nyantakyi, Ghana’s FA President, has granted various media interviews stating clearly that he won’t seek re-election when his current term expires in 2019.
However reports gathered by Ghana Sports indicate that Nyantakyi is set to make a U-turn declare his intentions to seek re-election despite occupying the seat for 12 years.
George Afriyie, the Vice President of the Ghana FA, has declared his candidacy for the 2019 elections.
