Kwesi Nyantakyi’s fourteen years in office as the president of the country’s football governing body was enough, according to his former vice.
Former Ghana Football Association vice president, George Afriyie says he advised his boss to leave office to save his legacy.
According to Mr. Afriyie, he never regretted sending a text message to the former FIFA Executive Committee council member.
“I felt he [Kwesi Nyantakyi] had to move on, so I told him to leave the position to protect his legacy in Ghana Football,” Mr. Afriyie told Oyerepa FM.
“Fourteen years in office as Ghana Football Association was enough for him to have moved on for a new person to take over”
“I have heard some people who were telling him to be in office for 18 years on other platforms that they will vie for the GFA presidency position”
Mr. Nyantakyi has been given a lifetime ban by FIFA after being caught taking bribe around $65,000 in a video exposé compiled by Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
