Nyantakyi goes unopposed for Wafu post


Kwesi Nyantakyi will run unopposed in Wednesday’s WAFU Zone B presidential election to be held in the Ghanaian city of Kumasi.

This comes after no other candidates filed nominations to contest the Ghana Football Association (GFA) President to lead the sub-regional body.

The election will be held during the Congress of WAFU Zone B.

This means Nyantakyi is set to extend his reign as Wafu Zone B President to at least four years as there is a proposal to extend the tenure of office of the president from two to four years.

Having taken charge of the body two years ago, the Nyantakyi is seeking to continue with his policy of reviving regional competitions in West Africa.

This year’s GOtv WAFU Cup has been hugely successful with eight countries participating in the competition that was previously dormant.

The competition has been revived thanks to sponsorship from continental sports broadcaster SuperSport which has seen all the matches broadcast live in sub-Saharan Africa for the first time in the history of the tournament.
