Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo is rumoured to have told incumbent Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi not to seek re-election in the 2019 GFA elections.
The GFA President along with Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah met the Ghanaian President with two of his advisors in the Jubilee House on Monday.
Akufo-Addo invited Nyantakyi to the high office of the land to discuss pertinent issues relating to football in Ghana.
Whilst the Ghanaian President was seeking to find out details about the recent public outcry about the wavering state of the nation’s football.
According to reports gathered by Ghana Sports Online and also rumoured by Accra-based Asempa FM, Nyantakyi went to the Jubilee House seeking to get Presidential backing to contest again for the seat.
However the President was not in favour of the idea while the sports minister also stated that it is necessary for Nyantakyi to stick to his earlier public statements not to seek the seat again in 2019.
Nyantakyi wants to remain in the Ghanaian football governing space in a bid to run for the CAF Presidency.
During the deliberations the Ghanaian President asked which candidate he feels can best serve his interest but the contingent could not mention a name.
George Afriyie has clinically watered down any doubt he might pull out of the race to contest for the Ghana FA Presidential elections in 2019.
