Nyantakyi sworn in for another 4 year term

President of the GFA Kwesi Nyantakyi been sworn in President of the GFA Kwesi Nyantakyi been sworn in

Kwesi Nyantakyi has been duly sworn in for a third successive term as President of the Ghana Football Association.

Nyatakyi took the oath of secrecy and that of his office to legally ratify his re-election for a fresh four-year term.

The lawyer ascended to his current position in 2005 after serving as Vice chairman to Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe.

His election ushered the GFA into a democratic era of electing members into key positions including President and members of the Executive Committee from the regime of government appointment.

Nyantakyi then witnessed the swearing-in of the new members of his Executive Committee in the oath administered by Supreme Court judge Justice Anin Yeboah.

Three individuals; Abdulai Alhassan, Francis Dogbatse and Roy Arthur who were elected onto the Executive Committee were however exempted from taking the oaths due to a legal challenge mounted by their opponents during the electioneering period.

The newly elected President and Executive Committee members will run Ghana football for the next four years.

Newly sworn-in Executive Committee members:

Frank Nelson, Samuel Opoku Nti, Leanier Addy, Nab Benjamin Eyison, George Afriyie, Delali Senaye, Albert Commey, Kweku Eyiah, J.F Mensah, Kurt Okraku, Wilfred Osei, Eddie Doku, Kojo Yankah, Augustine Asante, Salifu Shaibu Zida, Osei Tutu Agyemang, Lawal Abdul Ganiyu and Alhaji Daudi Sadugu Yahaya.
