The newly-elected President of the Ghana Football Association, Mr Kurt Okraku, has said his immediate predecessor, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, is his favourite FA President of all time.
“Let me pay tribute to all of the former Presidents so far”, Mr Okraku told Accra-based Starr FM’s Bola Ray on Wednesday, 30 October 2019, adding: “I don’t know who was first but I believe they have all played their roles in getting us here today”.
“But there is one man who has taken us to three mundials and that is Kwesi Nyantakyi.
“And, so, he will be my favourite FA President”, Mr Okraku said.
Mr Nyantakyi was forced to resign as FA President after he was captured on video allegedly taking a bribe in an undercover documentary dubbed Number 12 produced by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye P.I. team.
World football governing body FIFA then placed a life ban on Mr Nyantakyi from all football-related activities.
