Ghana FA chief Nyantakyi ready to appear before World Cup commission

Nyantakyi says he wants to appear before the World Cup commission

Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi says he is prepared to appear before the 2014 World Cup commission despite the reservation by FIFA about the terms of reference of the body.

Justice Senyo Dzamefe's Presidential Commission started its sitting in Accra on Monday under the cloud of suspicion that the GFA is not interested in appearing before them.

That is because FIFA warned that the world governing body could ban Ghana if issues of direct management of the Black Stars are perused at the commission as it violates the independence laws of the world governing body.

Much of the commission's hearing hinges on the appearance of the GFA and despite the worries about FIFA's concerns, Ghana FA chief Nyantakyi says he is ready to appear.

"I've not been invited and if am invited I will attend," Nyantakyi said.

This comes as a welcome news for the commission which has so far not indicated its intention of inviting the Ghana FA following the FIFA letter warning them about the remit of the probe.

    GSN is a joke.What is welcome news .Nyantakyi cannot refuse to appear before the commission.He would be arrested if he fails to honour the commission's invitation.He would be invited to justify the payment of $85,000 as appearance fee to himself and his quango committee members.Power drunk bloke.

    If we want out football to develop to the level that we envisage, WE SHOILD CREATE A SEPERATE FOOTBALL MINISTRY just like Brazilians has done! A separate football ministry ll function well as a lone entity than emerging this big business with other sports in the country!! Football is a global business brand that's needs a lot of capital investment to grow and the meagre governmental budget cannot sustain it!! Football should be separated from the other sports in the country and it can stand on its own by commercial sponsorship both domestic and internationally! A separate football ministry ll reduced corruption and its managers and officials could be prosecuted unlike the current system!! Furthermore, in Ghana, it seems we don't have a so called MINISTRY OF YOUTH AND SPORT but rather ministry for football as all the resources and budget have been allocated to football alone, relegating the other sports to the back burner!! With autonomous football ministry funding for its own activities, the other so called lesser known sports ll get the needed government support to grow up!! At this age, Ghana should have its own separate football ministry because BS has become a powerful global brand and probably the most FAMOUS AFRICAN NATIONAL TEAM FROM AFRICA!! There is not international corporate entity that wldnt love to be associated with the bs and our leaders needs to have a small FORESIGHT, VISION AND IMAGINATION!! A separate football ministry ll have enough resources to train local coaches, have personels responded only for club mgt, ref mgt, academies etc!! We should live beyond our time!

    Let's have a SEPARATE FOOTBALL MINISTRY NOW! Let's stop the colonial old school mentalities and broaden our horizons! Whats the meaning of ministry of youth and sports? What's the correlation here? These two entities are too big and broad and needed to be separate!! There are so many useless white elephant ministries in Ghana that needs to be scrap!! There should be a separate football ministry now because football is now the hottest global commodity and we have the finest talent to export to other countries to boost our economy! The football ministry, I bet anyone can FINANCE AND STAND ON ITS OWN without any governmental budget or support!! BS is the most famous national African team in the WC and we should take adv of that! Brazil has an autonomous football ministry and is about that time, we emulate them!!
