Ghana Premier League side, Tema Youth SC, Bank roller Winfred Kwaku Osei Parma has rejected calls for Ghana Football Association boss Kwesi Nyantakyi to step down.
According to the Black Stars management committee member, those calls are ‘’unjustifiable” and should not be treated with any seriousness.
The Wa All Stars team owner has not enjoyed peace after the 2017 Nations Cup tournament following the Black Stars failure to win Ghana its fifth AFCON title in Gabon.
Many are those who believe Nyantakyi has exhausted his football ideas and have therefore called for his immediate exit to make way for different personality to lead the football federation in Ghana.
But speaking on Kumasi based Abusua FM, Osei Parma quashed the ‘’unlawful” call for his resignation saying ‘’The only way Mr. Nyantakyi would leave his position is when he’s rejected by delegates at GFA’s congress hence all those calls be ceased immediately’’.
He indicated that the time has come for the entire nation to throw their support behind President Nyantakyi and the Ghana Football Association to transform.
He also those lambasting the FA Chief to put aback the country’s failure to conquer Africa to enable ”us build a team capable of winning the trophy that has eluded us for the past 35 years”.
‘’It’s not practicable because I don’t think we voted President Nyantakyi into office to win AFCON for us, that is not the parameter we set for him, we only voted for him to develop Ghana Football so where from the call that he should vacate his position simply because the Black Stars failed to win the just ended Nation’s Cup trophy in Gabon’’ Said Parma.
He added ‘’Are Ghanaians trying to tell us that all the qualified countries only went to Gabon to just participate at the tournament or they came to win for me I think every team came to win the cup and that is why Cameroon won because they had prepared well they took the right set hence emerging champions at the tournament at the expense of experienced Egyptians side’’
‘’What exactly have Kwesi Nyantakyi done to resign from his presidency, after all he didn’t select players for the tournament so why would you force him to resign, It is either those advocating for his resignation have a motive or what we call prior motive or had a preconceived motive that should Ghana fail to win the AFCON he would be forced to resign’’.
‘’For me I will be highly disappointed in Kwesi Nyantakyi if he resigns because he has to be tough and be able to stand pressure. We voted for him and we are comfortable with his job so far where from his pressure on the man to quit his job. Have heard about Egypt and the other participating team asking their respective Federation heads to resign after failing to win the Nations Cup’’ he asked.
Parma however advised Ghanaians to exercise restraint and channel their grievances or lobby for delegates to vote against the FA Capo in 2019 at congress if they fail he doesn’t worth the GFA presidency again rather than calling for this unlawful act.
