Ghana FA Chairman to step down for Amaju Pinnick

Reports have it that the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has already finalised with the CAF executive committee that Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi will step down for him and in turn he will support the GFA chief to stay put on the FIFA council.

Both the CAF executive committee and FIFA Council polls are slated for March 2017.

According to an official in CAF, “Pinnick and Nyantakyi are from the same zone and he has now hammered out a plan for Nyantakyi to step down for him for the CAF position, while he will fully support him for his re-election for a seat on the FIFA Council.”

Nyantakyi was also among the 18 football federation presidents who Pinnick hosted during the visit of FIFA boss Gianni Infantino to Nigeria in July.

The 48-year-old Nyantakyi has been GFA president since December 2005. He was first elected on the CAF executive committee in February 2011.

He is also the president of the sub-regional WAFU B and owns Ghanaian club Wa All Stars.
