Calls For My Resignation Are Not Tangible – Nyantakyi

Kwesi Nyantakyi, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has rejected calls for his resignation as the Chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee. He described the calls as intangible, adding that it lacks merit hence he will not resign from the position. The calls have been necessitated by the performance of the team at the Africa Cup of Nations, with some arguing that he is overburdened with several responsibilities. Nyantakyi said a press briefing on Wednesday that management of the Stars did their possible best to ensure the success of the team. “We provided everything the team needed to succeed in the competition and I don’t think the failure of the team can be attributed to us. “I want those calling for my resignation to give me good reasons why I should resign. “If the reasons are tangible I will consider them. But I think any reasons given are not tangible. I will not resign.” He stated. Nyantakyi, however, conceded that the team performed below expectation, since the gold medal was their ultimate target. “In 2008, we were third. In 2010 we were second and it was our belief that there will be a natural progression by winning the trophy, but things did not go our way. “We have taken note of our short falls and will work on them in subsequent tournaments.” He stated. Nyantakyi has in recent times come under criticisms over his numerous portfolios. The FA President, who doubles as the Black Stars Management Committee Chairman, also performs functions at the Confederation Africa Football (CAF), as Chairman of the Ethics Committee as an Executive member of the continent’s football controlling body.
