Kwesi Nyantakyi has been elected into the Executive council of CAF a while ago at the on-going 33rd CAF General Assembly being held in Khartoum, Sudan.
The results for the voting came a few minutes after the GFA boss cast his votes for the slot. KALUSHA BWALYA of Zambia and LEO TENGA of Tanzania were also elected onto CAF executive council.

Mr Nyantakyi as it stands now, is the first Ghanaian to secure a place on the Executive Committee since 1994 when Sam Okyere last served in the post.
Mr Nyantakyi, who is currently the president for the country’s Football Association, has an unbeaten record if it comes to contribution towards sports.

He masterminded Ghana’s first two World Cup appearances in which the country performed very well. Nyantakyi is also part of the recent successes of Ghana football at all levels including the youth level.

He endeared himself to the various African FA bosses with his affability, humility and his work ethic as compared to his main contender who has led Benin into chaos.

The editor of the Equirer newspaper, Raymond Archer says because the New Patriotic Party has tasted power before, they feel power must come back to them at all cost.

Speaking on Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji show on Saturday, Mr Archer explained that he has a feeling that what the people of Ghana want to see about a party in opposition is alternative leadership.

“It does not matter whether they provide alternative leadership or alternative policy that is credible or whatever, that thing the NPP have tasted is so important to them that they will do anything, as they have said in the past, to come back into power and that will make them lose power for a very very long time,” he said.

Commenting on the issue of the STX project, Mr Archer said he was happy for the President, John Evans Attah Mills and his vice, John Mahama and all the people who went through all they had to go through to get the project on course.

“I think if there is any project that this government appears to have gotten a lot of things right, from the start to where it now , then this could be one of those. The audacity to do this is incredible and I hope government will keep their eyes on this project.”

“I am very happy for our police officers and security officials, sometimes I wonder how they are able to deliver. I have always been in favour of government supporting the security service.”

Mr Archer noted that at least if the police and the security officials have the single spine and a decent place to lay their heads then he thinks they will deliver more than they are doing now.
