Ghana Football Association boss Kwesi Nyantakyi has been received clearance from FIFA which will enable him stand in next week’s FIFA Executive Council elections.
This clears the path for Nyantakyi to face Tanzania’s Leodegar Tenga for the sole slot for Anglophone countries within CAF after Zambian legend Kalusha Bwalya withdrew from the race.
The election will be held in Addis Ababa on 16 March and the outright winner will gain the position on the FIFA Council.
Nyantakyi is among ten individuals approved by FIFA’s Governance Committee to stand the election for various positions on the FIFA Council.
A statement by CAF on Wednesday revealed that Nyantakyi was among the ten people cleared with three withdrew from the race.
