Kwesi Nyantakyi to step down as GFA president to take up CAF position

President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi has hinted he will not seek re-election when his current tenure expires in 2019.

''Indeed, I have no plans to entrench myself in the position as it is a privileged post; at a point, I would have to leave and there is no better time to do so than when applaud is very loud,'' Nyantakyi told the Graphic Sports.

''I don't think I'm the only person capable of leading Ghana football. I can do so much but not everything. Besides, I think we all must take a page from the wind of change blowing in FIFA on reforms which among things place a limit on the term of president.’'
