JUST IN: CAF to elect new vice-president to replace Kwesi Nyantakyi



CAF will elect a new first vice-president during its General Assembly on 30th September 2018 to replace Kwesi Nyantakyi who resigned following corruption allegations.

Kwesi was the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) from December 2005 till 7th June 2018 when he featured prominently in a corruption expose by renowned Ghanaian investigative journalist Anas Anas leading to his resignation a day later.

Apart from being the second in command at CAF, Kwesi, who is a lawyer and a banker was also a FIFA Council member, a position he has also officially quit after the world’s football body handed him a provisional 90-day ban.

The former WAFU, the West Africa’s football body, boss has denied any wrong doing but apologized for “indiscretion.”

He has pledged to address the media in the coming days on the issues raised in the widely publicized piece by Anas.
