The Confederation of African (Caf) has confirmed that five persons are in contention to replace former GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi at the Fifa Council.
The Caf seat for English-speaking representative became vacant at the Fifa Council in June after Nyantakyi resigned following corruption allegation levelled against him in his country.
Despite being allegedly linked with bribery as it concerns South Africa winning the bid to play hosts to the World Cup in 2010, SAFA president Danny Jordaan has been cleared after an ethics inquest but now faces challenges from four other contestants.
In a statement, Caf also confirmed Seychelles Football Association president Elvis Chetty, Malawi FA boss Walter Nyamilandu, Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa and former Tanzania Football Association boss Leodgar Tenga in the running for the vacant seat at the world football governing body’s ruling council.
For Jordaan, this is the third attempt by the 67-year-old to seek election into the Fifa Council. It is understood that Jordaan will enjoy the support of COSAFA when the Caf Congress holds in Egypt on September 30.
