Kwesi Nyantakyi says he can combine FIFA and GFA roles as they are not full time jobs.
Nyantakyi alongside Almamy Kabele from Guinea were elected onto the FIFA Executive Council last Thursday and will serve from 30/09/2016 to 16/03/2017.
In the aftermath of the election, many football pundits in Ghana have called on the Wa All Stars chief to put down his tools as Ghana FA boss.
Nyantakyi however says his positions will not contradict as he would not be working full time in Zurich. He also says the GFA role is also not a full time job and the money is not enough to cater for him.
“Position of FIFA Ex.Co it is not a position you have been employed fully that you will be working all day in Zurich. You will attend meetings three or four times a year same as CAF,” Nyantakyi told Hot FM.
“At the GFA we meet six times a year and the emergency committee also meet every month. The GFA work is not every day work, like we would not have had that privilege to be doing our private stuffs. The money that I earn at GFA is not money that I can use to cater for myself,” he added.
Nyantakyi became Ghana Football Association President after he was elected into office in 2005, beating Y.A Ibrahim.
Nyantakyi is also West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Zone B President.
