Nyantakyi mourns with FIFA Scribe

Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi travelled to Senegal to mourn with the FIFA General Secretary Fatma Samoura following the death of her mother.
Madam Samoura had to dash from the FIFA headquarters in Zurich to her home town of Dakar last Monday following the passing of her mother.
Anna Ndiaye was buried the same day according to Islamic tradition. She was 77.
Samoura, who is the first African and woman to hold such high office in world football, has attracted much respect and support for her work since taking over the post.
Nyantakyi led some African federation heads who travelled to Dakar on Wednesday to join the funeral of the FIFA scribe’s mother with Senegal FA president Augustin Senghor, Guinea FA chief Antonio Soure and Mauritania FA boss Ahmed Yahya among some of the notable names who attended the funeral.
FIFA Director of Member Associations & Development for Africa and the Caribbean, Mr Véron Mosengo-Omba also travelled from Zurich to attend the funeral.
Nyantakyi paid tribute to Madam Ndiaye for raising Fatma insisting the qualities demonstrated by the FIFA Secretary General shows that she had a good upbringing by her parents.FA
