Kwesi Nyantakyi picked one of CAF’s two slots on the FIFA Executive Council, after he polled 31 votes on Thursday in Cairo.

Almamy Kabele Camara, the President of the Guinea Football Association, came top of the elections with 37 votes, with Kwesi Nyantakyi polling 31 votes to pip his closest competitor, Ahmad of Madagascar, the President of the Madagascar Football Association by just a vote

Augustin Senghor, the President of the Senegal Football Association, came last in the election.

By virtue of the results Almamy Kabele Camara and Kwesi Nyantakyi have been elected onto the FIFA Executive Council on the ticket of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Nyantakyi will join 32 other members to form the FIFA Executive Council which replaces the old 24-member Executive Committee as part of the reform process at FIFA.

2016 is a great year for Kwesi Nyantakyi, whose club Wa All Stars made history as the first club from the three Northern regions (Upper West, Upper East and Northern regions) to win the Ghanaian topflight league and Nyantakyi also achieving an enviable feat as the second Ghanaian to be elected onto the FIFA Executive Council.

The council has a mandate until March 2016, when new election will be conducted.

Before the election FIFA President Gianni Infantino and CAF President Issa Hayatou addressed the house.

Pulse Sports congratulates Kwesi Nyantakyi on his election onto the Executive Council of FIFA.
