Banjul, Gambia, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyie, Acting Chairman of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has revealed that he is not presently interested the chairmanship of the association.

He said that many have mentioned the idea to him but he is not interested in it because they are more important things to do in his present capacity for the GFA and that he does not see why such issues should occupy his mind.

Mr Nyantakyie told the GNA Sports that, "It is too early to set my his eyes on the hot seat and I don't think I'm the only person in the country to take up that job".

"I'm currently preoccupied with the existing sponsorship package from AshantiGold, the impending kits sponsorship deal with Umbro and the Black Stars World Cup qualifying game against Burkina Faso in June".

According to Mr Nyantakyie he would only take a decision after nominations are opened for elections for the position in August.

Mr Nyantakyie, a former Vice Chairman of the GFA assumed the acting chairmanship position last Thursday, after the resignation of Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe.

This was after Mr Yusif Adam Ibrahim, President of the Executive Council of the GFA confirmed him at the last Congress as the man to take over from Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe.

Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe's resignation follows the long standing legal battle between him and the Executive Council who attempted to impeach him after he had requested for more powers from the Minister of Education and Sports.
