Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwesi Nyantakyi has been confirmed as the 1st Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) at the body’s Executive Committee meeting in Bahrain.

The meeting in the Bahrani capital, Manama, was the first CAF Executive Committee meeting under the leadership of new CAF President Ahmad Ahmad after his election victory over Issa Hayatou on March 16.

Nyantakyi, a senior CAF executive and a FIFA Council member has distinguished himself on the body in his 12 year stay.

Constant Omari of the DR Congo has been chosen to be the 2nd Vice President.

Incidentally, Kwesi Nyantakyi and Constant Omari Selemani of DR Congo were the two ExCo members who joined Dr Ahmad in his maiden assignment as CAF President.

The Ghanaian will assist the Malagasy to run football on the continent for the next four years marking his consistent rise in the administration of the game in Africa.

The legal practitioner has been serving as a CAF executive committee member for almost a decade.

Nyantakyi was voted on the FIFA Council for an interim time of six month before securing a maximum 33 votes as against Leodegar Tenga’ 20 at CAF’s general elections held in Addis Ababa.

His effective style of management has won the hearts of many on the African football continent.
