Kwaku Eyiah set to replace Kwesi Nyantakyi as interim GFA Boss

Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kweku Eyiah, is expected to be appointed interim President of the Association tomorrow [Thursday].

Mr Ayiah’s elevation to the post was necessitated by the commencement of investigations by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service corruption allegations against the substantive GFA head, Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The Executive Committee of the Association is expected to meet on Thursday to address their current leadership crisis.

Citi Sports sources close to the GFA indicate that Kwesi Nyantakyi will step down from his position as investigations into his conduct ramp up, paving the way for an interim replacement to be appointed.

The GFA’s Executive Committee has already endorsed Mr Ayiah as Nyantakyi’s ideal replacement

Usually, the Vice President would take over the position once the President steps down, but the GFA is currently without a vice President after George Afriyie was sacked in April.

According to the GFA’s statutes, in the absence of a Vice President to act in the stead of the President, the ExCo elects one of their members to act as interim President.

Kwaku Eyiah is currently Chairman of Management team of the Black Starlets, Ghana’s U-17 National Team and head of juvenile football in the country.

Under investigation

Deputy Chief of Staff, Abu Jinapor on Tuesday confirmed that the GFA Boss was the subject of an investigation by the CID after the President had seen parts of an investigative piece by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Mr Jinapor told reporters that Kwesi Nyantakyi was captured trying to secure investments in the name of the President, Vice President and other key government officials.

The CID is investigating Mr Nyantakyi for defrauding by false pretence.

Nyantakyi was not in the country when the claims against him were made but cut short his official visit to Morocco and turned himself into the police on Wednesday.

He was granted bail but was then escorted by Police who conducted a search of his home.
