Respected Football Administrator J.Y. Appiah Sees Nothing Wrong With Nyantakyi Seeking Re-Election

If Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi rescinds his decision and decides to seek for re-election after publicly announcing that he will not contest again in 2019, the decision will not surprise highly respected football administrator J. Y. Appiah.

The former GHALCA Boss and an influential king-maker within the football fraternity had earlier implored and lauded the decision of Kwesi Nyantakyi not to seek re-election.

Even though Kwesi Nyantakyi has not publicly rescinded his decision not to seek re-election, recent calls from the executive committee of the Ghana FA make it like that he will seek re-election.

With uncertainty surrounding his decision to seek re-election or not, J. Y. Appiah believes that the power to decide rests on the shoulder of Kwesi Nyantakyi.

He adds that if Nyantakyi decides to seek re-election backed by significant reasons, he (J. Y. Appiah) will support him.

“What is surprising about this? He did his interview and said it’s likely he may not seek re-election. If after pondering over his comment he thinks he must seek re-election, why should I be surprised?

“Kwesi is my son and so if he decides to seek re-election explaining to me why he is taking that decision, why shouldn’t I support him if his reasons are sensible? If the reasons are not significant enough, I will counsel him,” he told Happy FM.

Nyantakyi has been the Ghana FA President since 2006 and his tenure has seen several reforms in Ghana football compelling many to insist he seeks re-election in 2019 to consolidate the reforms before he finally exits as GFA President.
