Corruption: Ghana’s FA Boss Nyantakyi Gets 90-Day FIFA Ban

Corruption: Ghana’s FA Boss Nyantakyi Gets 90-Day FIFA Ban

FIFA responded earlier on Friday by banning Nyantakyi from "all football-related activity" for 90 days pending an investigation with a possible further suspension of up to 45 days.

His ban comes following an investigative piece from ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas' on corruption in Ghana Football where the GFA boss was caught on camera collecting cash from undercover reporters.

Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team had met Mr. Nyantakyi and Abu in a plush hotel in Morocco as investors interested in sponsoring Ghana's premier league.

The Ghanaian government has made a decision to shut down the Ghanaian Football Association following allegations of corruption in the organisation that have surfaced in recent days.

Mr Nyantakyi is the second most powerful official in African football and also a member of the Fifa Council.

I hope that Ghana Football will get back on its feet from this controversy.

BBC reports that Ghana's information minister Mustapha Abdul-Hamid said the government had "decided to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved", citing the "widespread nature of the apparent rot".

The Ghana Football Association issued a statement last month backing their president and saying he was innocent until proven guilty.
