Triumphant GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi will return to Ghana on Friday after he was re-elected onto the Fifa Council by the General Assembly of the Confederation of African Football in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Thursday.

Nyantakyi was first elected onto the newly constituted Fifa Council last year, with just six months left for the term of office to elapse.

On Thursday in Ethiopia, Nyantakyi was re-elected for a full, four-year term on the Fifa Council by securing 33 votes, 13 more than his opponent Leodegar Tenga, who got 20 votes.

The Caf General Assembly also ended the 29-year reign of Issa Hayatou as Caf president by electing Madagascar's Ahmad as the new president of the confederation.
