Gambia Football Association president Seedy Kinteh says Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi is popular at Caf to win next month's Executive Committee elections.

Nyantakyi will be competing against representatives from Benin, Niger and Togo for a single slot.

The elections will take place at the Caf 33rd Ordinary General Assembly on 23 February, 2011 in Khartoum, Sudan, prior to CHAN final.

Kinteh, a member of Kwesi Nyantakyi's campaigning team, claims the Ghana FA boss has paid his dues in football administration to be awarded by the delegates.

“He is very popular at Caf and Ghanaians will know that by what happens in Khartoum. I have known him since 2005 and this man (Nyantakyi) deserves whatever he wishes on the continent, Kinteh said on a local radio station on Tuesday.

“Kwesi has been successful by qualifying the country to two successive World Cup finals and worked very hard for it so we need to encourage this humble and down-to-earth man in football.”

Kinteh is one of 20 African Football Association heads expected to grace the commissioning of a Fifa Goal project on Wednesday in Ghana.

The arrival of the various Football Association presidents is huge endorsement of Kwesi Nyantakyi as they are said to be huge supporters of the Ghanaian administrator.
