Kwesi Nyantakyi presidency under threat?

By Patrick Akoto

There is a MASSIVE PLOT to unseat incumbent Ghana Football Association boss Kwesi Nyantakyi at the next congress in 2015, Happy FM reported on Monday.

According to the Accra-based sports station, there are plans by some unnamed persons to ensure Nyantakyi is dethroned at the next election so that they can take full control of the Ghana Football Association.

The unnamed persons are reported to have started the ground work to bring in a new face to steer the country’s football by pumping massive cash into the grand scheme designed to unseat the popular leader of Ghana football.

According to the report a staggering $70,000 has be made available to some journalists, politicians and those at the grassroots amongst others to make Nyantakyi unpopular.

The report says faceless individual have also started by bribing division one clubs by paying their referees fees in the bid to buy their sympathy one year before elections.

This comes with increasing signs that the 44-year-old could go unopposed following his outstanding performances over the last eight years which has seen Ghana move from global also-rans to permanent impressive World Cup participants.

Nyantakyi has remained a cult figure since he ascended the presidency, making him a powerful force to contend with which has forced his critics to work against his potential victory at the next congress of the Ghana FA.

Whoever wants to unseat the highly-respected football chief must have the support of the professionals clubs and leagues as well as regional block for a tilt at the FA job.

Nyantakyi grip on power depends on the support of congress but he seems to enjoy massive support from many of the members.

Today (Monday December 30) marks exactly eight years that the affable football administrator was elected as the first president of the Ghana Football Association.

He steered Ghana to three successive World Cup appearances, Africa’s only U20 World Cup title and several other achievements.

    They should leave this man alone. He is like Coachito, very friendly and always smiling. I believe in democracy, so who ever want to contest is welcome but to try to bribe your way is overboard.
    I don’t see this guy losing his seat anyway.

      IDIOTS! IDIOTS! IDIOTS! at the GSN. The bloggers at this website never cease to amaze me with their stupidity, dumbness and outright illiteracy. Are you kidding me that in this day and age you will have anyone with common sense write such a childish article. As much as I despise this Nyantakyi guy, this vague and utterly nonsense cannot be anywhere near the truth than GSN trying to create one of their mallard brain stories

      Its unbelievable the level of unprofessional-ism these bloggers at GSN have. There is no massive conspiracy to overthrow Nyantakyi.

      Nyantakyi is not the best that ever happened to the GFA so GSN should stop making him look like a saint. Not everyone in Ghana football loves him. After receiving bribes from him, GSN is trying to plant this story in the media to create public sympathy as well as garner support for him in the upcoming national GFA congress.

      We are not stupid.
