FIFA Ban Ghana FA President

FIFA Ban Ghana FA President

Embattled former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi says he did no wrong in the Anas Expose but reveals he was deceived by a group of scammers.

The latest documentary from controversial Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anasexposes this unfortunate truth.

Specifically, Nyantakyi requested $5 million for Akufo-Addo, $3 million for Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, $2 million for the roads minister, $1 million for a deputy roads minister and another $1 million for him and one of his aides. I take sole and personal responsibility for the proceedings on the video.

The GFA President, ahead of his resignation, was banned from all football-related activities for 90 days by the world football governing body, FIFA.

Federation Internationale de Football Association said on Friday it was suspending Nyantakyi for 90 days.

Nyantakyi, who is vice-president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and also a member of the Fifa Council, was filmed in a luxury hotel in the Middle East, where he was made to believe he was meeting a wealthy businessman.

Abdul-Hamid said the government was "shocked and outraged" at the claims, which included referees apparently accepting bribes of at least $100 to throw matches.

The information minister said the documentary "exposes gross malfunctioning of the Ghana Football Association characterised by widespread fraud, corruption and bribery".

The two-hour documentary, When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was provided to the authorities last month before being screened in public for the first time on Wednesday.

Provisional measures will be put in place to run the sport in Ghana until a new body is formed.

They will also drop out of the U20 World Cup.

Under his tenure, the FIFA Executive member succeeded in qualifying Ghana for unprecedented three successive World Cup Finals in 2006 (Germany), 2010 (South Africa) and 2014 in Brazil.

Black Maidens won bronze at the U-17 World Cup.
