Leading member of NDC warns party against plot to remove Ghana FA chief Nyantakyi

A leading member of the ruling NDC government has asked some members of the party seeking the head of Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi to stay away from matter of the football federation.

Yaw Boateng-Gyan, National Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), says such acts will paint their party in a bad light given what the young lawyer has achieved for Ghana football.

Since the Black Stars bombed out of the World Cup at the group stage in Brazil some leading members of the NDC have been calling for the head of the GFA saying they will take over the administration of the game.

Leading members of the party Ade Coker and Harry Zakkour have all stated that they are keen on taking over the federation while Allotey Jacobs and Anita de Souza all memers of the party have joined in the fray.

But Boateng-Gyan, who is a member of the Black Stars management committee, says he has warned those of party members seeking to disrupt Nyantakyi's reign as Ghana FA chief.

‘’I’m not happy with the position of some of our members on Nyantakyi," said Boateng-Gyan, who leads the organisation of plans for the ruling NDC party.

“I have warned them to stay away from the activities of the GFA and change their attitude towards the affable young man.

‘I’m surprise at the way they are behaving but nothing will work out. What has Nyantakyi done wrong to deserve this? These acts must stop.”

FIFA is already monitoring reports out of Ghana that government is seeking to interfere with the administration of football.

    As much as I want NYANTAKYI out, woe betides us if the fa fall in the hands of recalcitrant characters such as harry and Ade coker! We ll jump from FRYING PAN TO FIRE! Wasn't it ade coker's time when a mere football costs the country, million of cedis? What did Ade coker accpmplised as the fa president or chairman during his tenure? This guy was one of the worst fa president this country has ever seen and now,he has the moral right to point fingers at someone! This coker guy is an opportunist and he has his own dirty agenda and we need to watch him careful! Even his own NDC members are suspecting him and that should tell us something! Ade comer is doing politics as usual but it seems Ghanaians has short memories! Ade coker was a complete failure and he couldn't do nothing for football but he wants to come back probably he now see a huge opportunity NYANTAKYI and ghanaians has made over the course of this few years!

    It is not government interference! Ghanaian soccer enthusiast wants out. Nobody denies that he did Ghana soccer good. However he became power drunk and has no respect for stake holders such as the playing body and the regional administrators of the sport. It's a common knowledge that power must not reside with anyone for long. It's time Nyantakyi leaves the scene. Yes there is corruption in the system led by Nyantakyi! Why do you think Beckenbauer was not seen at the just ended World Cup in Brazil? Beckenbauer was asked to step aside by FIFA. If Ghana government should not interfere, then we asked that FIFA must step in to investigate. By saying that FIFA doesn't want government interference is absurd because FIFA doesn't perpetuate corruption! May be fifa should come in in place of Ghana government. FIFA must not interfere with internal mishaps of any country suffice it to say and for that matter! Apuu. Enough of the disrespectful ness by Nyantakyi and his cohorts

    Hearts of oak were declared BANKRUPT after they won the Africa cup the following year headed by Harry Zakour. He has all too soon finished all the money he stole from Hearts and wants to continue with the national team. BS is for Ghanaians not aliens. Who? Ade Coker as GFA president? For the where? What did he achieve during his tenure of office? At least, Akwesi has sent us to three world cups. BS has over three semifinals and one final in AFCON. Even in his worse world cup the BS had a point and scored four goals. We are all aware that some countries have been struggling to record even a goal at the world cup. These greedy spent horses. Hahahaha. They are running for cover because they know come 2016 NDC cannot retain power!
