Ghana Football Association vice president George Afriyie is optimistic his boss Kwasi Nyantakyi will be elected onto the new FIFA Executive council.
The Ghana FA boss faces stiff competition from five other candidates at CAF all vying to be on the FIFA Executive Council.
CAF’s first Vice President Suketu Patel of Seychelles pulled out of the race last week leaving the second vice President Almamy Kabele Camara from Guinea among the tough six candidates Nyantakyi will have to defeat to get a seat.
Nyantakyi’s counterpart on the CAF Executive Committee Ahmad of Madagascar as well as his fellow West African FA chiefs Hamidou Djibrilla from Niger and Senegal’s Augustin Senghor.
The last contender for the election to be held on 29th September in Cairo is Chabur Goc Alei of South Sudan and George Afriyie who is the vice to Nyantakyi says it will be a victory for all Ghanaians.
Speaking to the press at the launch of the U-15 Championship, George said, “A victory for Nyantakyi will be a victory for Ghana because it will be the first time a Ghanaian will be elevated to that level.
“I can assure all Ghanaian that Nyantakyi will win Insha Allah.”
