Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi will be endorsed as one of the two Vice Presidents of the Confederation of African Football (Caf) on Tuesday, April 11, 2017.
Mr Nyantakyi, who is an Executive Committee member of Caf, is expected to be nominated by new President Ahmad Ahmad.
In an interview with TV3 Sports on Monday, April 3, Mr Nyantakyi, though being cautiously optimistic, said: “I am pretty confident that based on the discussions we had, there is a great consensus on [my nomination]”.
The nomination will be voted on by the Confederation’s Executive Committee on April 11.
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 two are likely to assist the Malagasy to run football on the continent for the next four years.
