Kwasi Nyantakyi reveals what he will do if he gets the nod to be an MP


Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi has declared his ambition to become the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ejisu Constituency.

He has confirmed reports that he is interested in replacing deceased lawmaker John Kumah, whose untimely death occurred on Thursday, March 7.

Speaking on Onua TV‘s Maakye morning show, the former GFA President said he will ensure that football is revived if he becomes a Member of Parliament.

“I will ensure that the GFA takes back its past glory,” he told host Captain Smart on Tuesday, April 2.

“I am a former President [of the GFA], so I see myself as an insider,” he added.

“Wherever I find myself I have to use my wisdom to help improve not only football but sports as a whole. I am also a lawyer, so I will use all that to help develop football.”

The former Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) says he is in constant touch with many officials of the continent’s sport-governing body and even FIFA.

He said recently when CAF officials were in Ghana for the 13th African Games, he was apprised of all the activities regarding football ahead of the competition.

He says he continues to watch football and he is in an appeals process to overturn the 15-year ban imposed on him by football’s world-governing body.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is expected to open nominations for the Ejisu primary later today, Tuesday, April 7.

Mr Nyantakyi says delegates have resolved to pick the forms on his behalf.
