Kwesi Nyantakyi, the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will go to the polls with four other federation presidents in his quest to be elected onto the Executive Council of the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).

Nyantakyi is competing against Sukeru Patel, the first Vice President of CAF who is also the President of the Seychelles Football Association, Hima Djibrilla Hamidou (Niger), Augustin Senghor (Senegal), Almany Kabele Kamara (Guinea) and Ahmad of Madagascar.
