Nyantakyi: CAF ExCo agreed to conceal 2017 AFCON bid results

first_imgGhana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi has exclusively told Joy Sports the decision to conceal the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations bid results was agreed at a CAF Executive Committee meeting.Caf has been heavily criticized for the lack of transparency in the voting process that saw Gabon who co-hosted the tournament with Equatorial Guinea in 2012 win the bid to host the next Afcon at the expense of Ghana and Algeria.Some officials of the Ghana bid committee have had causes to question the credibility of the voting process over allegations it lacks the requisite transparency.But Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi who serves on CAF’s Executive Committee says the decision to of not declaring the voting results cannot be an index in classifying the process as radically flawed and unfair. “It was agreed at a CAF Executive Committee meeting that the results of the votes [for AFCON hosting rights] is not published,” said Nyantakyi.“There is a feeling that reveal the results will cause some acrimony and therefore this issue was discussed at the meeting and majority of the membership agreed that the results are not revealed.” –last_img
