FA President Aspirant, Mr. Vincent Sowah Odotei has intensified his verbal attack on current FA chief, Mr. Kwasi Nyantakyi, by goading delegates not to retain the current FA when the time for congress comes.

He declared on Happy FM’s “Paemu ka” programme two days ago, calling on delegates to vote the Nyantakyi-led administration out of power, saying “If you vote for Nyantakyi, you will waste your votes.”

Making a case for the delegates to give him their mandate, the King Faisal CEO said the current demands of football administration calls for a leader who can diagnose the problems confronting the game, and that is the leadership qualities expected to take Ghana football to another level.

“Those who are saying Nyantakyi and co are deeply rooted and cannot be voted out, are enslaved by history”, he said. Odotei promised to provide an all-inclusive leadership, “but what do we see now? There are just some few people at the helm of the affairs of Ghana football.” he queried.

Nicknamed ‘Obama’, he pointed out that the skills and competence in the governance of football calls for a new direction, and that could be achieved by the right mind set and change of attitude.

“The game is not attractive anymore, and the business of football is not profitable any longer, hence the need for a change to build on what the current FA has done,” said Odotei.

He however, praised Nyantakyi for putting together a constitution that ensured some level of liberation when he took over from Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe, saying “Nyantakyi was fantastic in his early days because we all felt liberated.”

Responding to the reason behind his short stint with Hearts of Oak as a CEO, he revealed that the internal wrangling in the club at the time compelled him to quit and join Alhaji Gruza’s King Faisal.

According to Odotei, he purposed to introduce a modern finance integrated system, as well as a high profile website system as the CEO of Hearts of Oak, but the conservative leadership of Hearts of Oak did not permit him to attain his targets.

As the CEO of King Faisal, he is eying the premier league title in the next three seasons, but pledged to give the forthcoming league a good crack. He admitted that working with his Alhaji Gruza is not as difficult as people make it out to be, but very challenging.
