Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi will be re- elected as a member of the CAF Executive Committee on Tuesday April 7.

After CAF opened nominations for the Zone West B slot on the committee, no candidate filed to contest the Ghana FA boss.

He will therefore go unopposed in Tuesday's elections at the 37th Annual General Meeting in Cairo, Egypt.

Mr. Nyantakyi was instrumental in reviving the WAFU Nations Cup in 2013 with a successful tournament hosted and won by Ghana.

In February 2011, Nyantakyi won the CAF Executive Committee seat in a landslide victory after polling 34 votes, 15 more than what Benin's Anjorin Moucharafou garnered.

He became the fifth Ghanaian to become a member of CAF's Executive Committee after Ohene Djan (1961-1966), Kobina Hagan (1961-1962), Nana Fredua Mensah (1968-1972) and Samuel Okyere (1990-1994).
