Ghana Football Association communications director Ibrahim Sannie Daara is optimistic of Kwasi Nyantakyi’s chances in the FIFA Executive Council elections on Thursday.
Nyantakyi faces stiff competition from other five candidates contesting for two slots allocated to Africa on the FIFA Executive Council.
Vice President of CAF, Suketu Patel of Seychelles pulled out of the race last week paving way for second Vice President, Almamy Kabele Camara from Guinea, CAF Executive Committee member, Ahmad of Madagascar, Niger FA boss, Hamidou Djibilla and Senegal’s Augustine Senghor to compete for the slots.
Despite the tough competition, Sannie Darra in an interview with Asempa Sports stated that the GFA boss will win hands down.
“People have pulled out of the race but I believe Nyantakyi has down a very good campaign to win the slot.
“The youth and sports minister, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye has given him his back up and many people want Nyantakyi to be there and I strongly believe that he will win hands down in the first round of the election.”
