I have reached my pinnacle in sports – Nyantakyi

Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi says there is no need to go back to football because he has achieved everything he wanted.

Nyanktakyi served as the president of the football governing body in Ghana beginning in 2005 until the Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ expose in 2018 taking the Black Stars to their first World Cup in 2006.

The expose saw the 55-year-old banned from football-related activities by FIFA until he was recently cleared.

There were rumours Nyantakyi would head back to football administration after the latest verdict but he has opted to pursue a different career, claiming he has nothing to achieve in the sport again.

“Politics is the ultimate. In all we do…you need political guidance,” he said when asked about his decision to go into politics in an interview with Onua TV.

“I have excelled in Sports. You can’t mention three or four people who are famous in sports in Ghana without adding me. I have reached the pinnacle of my career in sports.

“Apart from Ohene Djan, no one has ever reached where I did in sports. No Ghanaian has served on the FIFA Council. I was the second person after Ohene Djan in the 1960s.”

He explained that the desire to make an impact with the acquired knowledge is the rationale behind the decision to go into politics.

“I want to use the knowledge, experience and connections that I have acquired for political influence and help the people of this country,” he added.

“That is what motivated and encouraged me to see if I can help in that regard.”

Nyantakyi has formally communicated his decision to contest for the parliamentary seat at Ejisu following the death of John Kumah.
