Outspoken Football Administrator, Abbey Pobi has urged Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi to rise above controversies and the reproach in football matters following his new position at the FIFA Executive Council.
Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is also a CAF Executive Committee member, secured one of the two slots available for CAF on the highest decision-making committee at Fifa. He becomes the first Ghanaian to serve in that position following Thursday’s election in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
Mr Nyantakyi polled 31 votes, one more than his closest challenger, Ahmad of Madagascar, to win the seat.
“If he will listen to our advice, he should know that he is an Executive Committee member of CAF, he is an Executive Committee member of Fifa, and so this is the time he should repent and put aside the old behavior and turn a new leaf. He needs to be clean, transparent, so that he will not dent the image of Ghana on the international front.” Mr. Pobi told Accra FM.
The Neoplan Stars owner further urged Nyantakyi to be very careful with his new position.
