While he received confirmation as the First Vice President of Caf on Monday, Ghana’s Kwesi Nyantakyi was also appointed the Chairman of the Committee for Revision of Statutes of the Africa’s football governing body.
At the Caf Executive Meeting in Bahrain, two ad hoc committees approved. The President of the Confederation of African Football (Caf), Ahmad, proposed the establishment of the two ad hoc committees, composed mainly of presidents of member associations – one which takes charge of Revision of Statutes and the other for Compensation.
The Revision of Statuses Committee, chaired by Nyantakyi has presidents of the Egypt, Uganda, Sechyelles, Gambia, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic and Botswana football associations as members. A FIFA Consultant on Governance will serve as one of the resource persons.
“A seminar will be organized for the presidents of the member associations to present to them the work of the Committee for the Revision of Statutes for their input before the finalization of the draft to be submitted to the Executive Committee and the General Assembly,” Caf announced.
Kwesi Nyantakyi’s position as Caf’s First vice president automatically places him in the Emergency Committee headed by President Ahmad.
