Nyantakyi Gets Wa Post
A few days after retaining his seat as Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwesi Nyantakyi has been enskinned as Naa Janjang Sungmaale (Development Chief).
The honour was bestowed on the FA boss by the Paramount Chief of the Wa Traditional Area, Naa Alhaji Fuseini Seisu Pelpuo IV, at a special ceremony in Wa last Saturday.
It comes on the heels of a similar elevation by the Tamale Dagpena Naa as the Boole Naa (Football chief) of Tamale a few months ago.
The Confederation of Africa (CAF) Executive Committee member described the recognition as a great honour.
'This goes to show that people and society watch whatever you do. It will certainly urge me on to work extra hard wherever I find myself. I will not relent and I must say I am most grateful for this honour. I am humbled, thank you very much,' said Nyantakyi.
His brilliance on the green turf in his youthful days at Wa earned him the accolade 'Wa Polo'.
