Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has been voted for his second term on the FIFA Council after defeating Leodegar Tenga in Addis Ababa.

Nyantakyi was favourite to retain the seat, after Zambian legend Kalusha Bwalya pulled out of the race citing the need for unity as the key reason, and he did itconvincingly.

The President won by 13 votes securing 33 out of the 53 votes with the Tanzanian gaining the remaining 20 thus winning 62.6% of the votes.

Nyantakyi secures a four-year term on the FIFA Council after securing just six months in office in his previous victory for the same post.

And he is highly fancied to be named CAF vice after Ahmad of Madagascar defeated long-serving leader Issa Hayatou earlier on Thursday.
