ACCRA, The president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has been appointed First Vice-President of the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF).
Nyantakyi’s appointment was approved by the Executive Committee of the CAF which met in Bahrain Monday, while Constant Omari of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was named the 2nd Vice-President of the confederation.
Having served as the GFA president since 2005, Nyantakyi becomes the first Ghanaian to be appointed as the second in command of African football’s governing body.
Nyantakyi, a CAF Executive Committee and FIFA Council member, contributed immensely to the historic victory of Ahmah Ahmad of Madagascar over the long-serving Issah Hayatou as CAF president in the election for the top post held in Addis Ababa in March, which might have influenced his appointment as first vice-president.
The Ghanaian will assist Ahmad as they seek a revolution of African football during the next four years.
