Embattled President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi has been banned from all football related activities for 90 days by an independent Ethics Committee of FIFA.
FIFA’s reaction was on back of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest documentary on corruption in football and politics, where several high ranking members in the GFA, including the President Kwesi Nyantakyi, were implicated in acts of corruption.
Some high profile figures who were named by GFA boss Nyantakyi include Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Deputy Roads
Transport Minister Anthony Karbo, and MP for Assin Central and Anas’ biggest critic over the last few days, Kennedy Agyapong.
In the video, Nyantakyi, in an interaction with persons he believed to be investors, quoted several sums of money to be given to those political figures and himself in order to facilitate the deal.
There were also a number of cases of referees being bribed to take decisions which would sway Ghana Premier League games in favour of one side.
