GFA Boss Nyantakyi Draws Huge Crowd At Commission Hearing

The Ghana FA boss is meeting the Presidential Commission of Inquiry looking into happenings at the 2014 World Cup and his presence has drawn huge support. Hundreds of people from various sections of the football community have besieged the premises of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to support Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is appearing this morning. The GFA capo is appearing before the Dzamefe Commission to respond to issues surrounding Ghana’s participation at the Brazil 2014 World Cup. The Accra Sports Stadium, premises of the Commission hearings, has virtually been turned into a rally for football administrators, supporters, old players and various players in the football industry who have all appeared to offer backing to the GFA boss. Those who have turned up so far include the 10 Regional chairpersons of the GFA, almost all Executive Committee members led by the Vice President of the Association, Fred Crentsil, members of the various GFA Committees and club administrators and representatives who constitute the GFA Congress, the highest decision making body of the Association and Ghalca members. Notable football faces spotted at the hearing are Felix Ansong, Edwin Gyimah, Owoahene Acheampong, Ashford Tettey and Moses Armah Parker. Aside these key officials of the Football Association, notable coaches like Fred Osam Duodu and members of various Supporter Union groups, many former players of the national teams and various other interested persons in football have turned up and filled the auditorium where the hearing is happening. Despite some public opposition to the current GFA Administration, there are clear indications that the GFA boss still enjoys massive support within the corridors of football, especially at the GFA Congress which ultimately is responsible for electing the President of the Association and other Executive Committee Members.
