New President for the Togo Football Federation

 New President for the Togo Football Federation

Gabriel Ameyi (photo) vowed to work hard to restore confidence in Togo football after he was elected the new president of the country's soccer federation on Friday.
Following the vote, which Ameyi won in a poll of 52 Togolese soccer delegates, the new president called for officials to work together.
"We can pool our energies and resources together to revive our country's football which has been torn apart by deep crisis," he said.
The 44-year-old Ameyi will lead a new federation after Togo's conflict-ridden soccer body was dissolved by FIFA in 2009 and placed under the control of an interim committee, beginning a disastrous spell for the sport in the west African country.
Ameyi, the founder and owner of the Maranatha first division club, won 33 votes to 19 for Boukpessi Essoyaba after the election was held in a hall, with reporters locked out. A third candidate, Amouzou Tetteh, received no votes.
Togo sports minister Christophe Tchao asked Ameyi to work with his defeated opponents in the interests of the country.
Ameyi is expected to take office next week.
