Vincent Sowah-Odotei vows to dethrone Kwesi Nyantakyi as Ghana FA boss

Ex-Hearts of Oak chief Vincent Sowah-Odotei has vowed to unseat Kwesi Nyantakyi as Ghana FA boss at next year’s congress, declaring change is coming. 

The former King Faisal boss has set his agenda in motion, declaring the incumbent FA boss will lose his seat at next May’s congress in Accra.

The current term of the CAF Executive member runs out in less than a year and Vincent Sowah Odotei has confirmed he will challenge Nyantakyi again for the FA top job.

“I can tell you that by May next year, Nyantakyi will not be the FA president,” he told Happy FM

“Change is coming. Change is blowing and Nyantakyi will lose his seat.

“He has done his part and so should allow someone to continue. The Ghana FA does not belong to him.

He accused Tema Youth president Winfred Osei Parma especially of championing Nyantakyi re-election bid.

“I am telling those who are propping him up that change is coming,”

“Parma and co who are urging him to contest again should know that there is an end to everything."

Odotei has made a sensational u-turn after be revealed in February this year that he was not interested in the job, claiming it was ‘waste to his youth’

The marketing expert was disqualified from the race four years ago after he failed to meet the set requirement.

An avid critic of the Nyantakyi administration, Odotei feels the  Black Stars shambles at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil has made the 44-year-old unpopular and want to capitalise on that.

    GFA is an association and not a government institution. U cant claim the seat as ur right or bcos ur govt is in power. Odotei is not speaking as canvassing for votes, but rather as one who has declared coup on Nyantakyi. I wish ur loud mouth will amount to loud votes by the other association member.

    Those calling for retired footballer s like Abedi, Tony ,Yeboah to manage GFA are jokers because these guys lack the administrative and managerial acumen, they might only be good for technical aspect.

    Give us another contestant. I don't think this guy will be equal to the job. The fact that people want Nyantakyi to leave does not mean we should elect anybody at all for the position. Ghanaians should be careful to elect a knowledgeable, level headed but qualified individua for the position. Especially one who will be his own man and not tribalistic,corrupt or greedy. To us Ghanaians, this position is as dear to us as the National Presidency. People will like to capitalize on Nyantakyi's current poor rating to fulfill their selfish agenda, but it should not be so.

    Anthony baffoe is better for the GFA job the rest are all vampires like the current members. Anthony Baffoe should please step in maybe he will win. His a good man with great experiences. I will pray for him anytime he request for the GFA boss. Abedi Pele and Anthony Yeboah are all vampires likes the current members. We dont like Sowa to be GFA boss over our dead body tofiakwa. But Anthony Baffoe is our Egwee Egwee Egwee we knill down before you Anthony Baffoe Egwee Egwee.

    There's nothing to fear abt the one who shout. Its below my dignity to belong to nay political party in Gh as they dont meet my aspiration with their chronic corruption n lies. Now back to the point. If u are right, there's no need to shout, n i fu are wrong, u have no right to shout. Shouting n name calling is a sign of insecurity n liers who intimidate people to hush them. Civility n tolerance is a sign of the truly educated minds. i rest my case...
