Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and FIFA Council member has provisionally been banned, for 90 days by the chairperson of the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee of the Federation International Football Association (FIFA).

The duration of the ban may be extended for an additional period not exceeding 45 days. During this time, Mr. Nyantakyi is banned from all football activities at both national and international level (administrative, sports or any other). The ban comes into force immediately.

The decision was taken upon the request of the chairperson of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee carrying out the formal investigation proceedings into Mr. Nyantakyi, pursuant to art. 83 par. 1 and art. 84 par. 2 of the FIFA Code of Ethics.

This action follows after Anas released the investigative documentary, titled ‘Number 12: on Wednesday showing over 70 referees and other football officials taking bribes before games with the intention of manipulating the outcomes of the games and selections.

The GFA President Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi accepted a bribe of $65,000 from undercover journalists who posed as investors who wanted to sponsor the Ghana league and during the conversation wanted government contracts.
