Federation Internationale de Football Association bans Kwesi Nyantakyi over Anas exposé

08 June 2018

The beleaguered FA boss, who became Ghana's football chief 13 years ago, is now being investigated by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service following a complaint by Ghana's President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, alleging that Mr Nyantakyi criminally used his name and that of the Vice President, as well as other high ranking government officials, to solicit money from supposed global investors, who turned out to be undercover private investigators with Tiger Eye PI, as captured in the documentary, entitled #Number 12.

Former Attorney General Marietta Brew Appiah-Oppong has said there are grounds for prosecution of the officials who were captured in the investigative piece on Ghana football by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Ghana's Sports Minister Isaac Asiama has stated that the association will be "dissolved with immediate effect", Ghana Web reports.

The documentary has led to widespread calls for the dissolution of the body, with Ghana League Clubs Association president Kudjoe Fianoo telling KweséESPN: "We have to break down the structures and rebuild it".

The statement added that the government will announce provisional measures to govern football until a new body is formed, and that it would inform FIFA and the Confederation of African Football of its decision.

Bailly was pulled over Friday because of tinted windows on his vehicle and was advised to correct the problem, police said. Bailly, who responded to the emergency call, was able to deliver Patterson with the aid of a doctor, who was on the phone.

Football is by far the most popular sport in Ghana, and while the Black Stars failed to reach this year's World Cup finals, they were quarterfinalists in South Africa in 2010.

This means Mr Nyantakyi ceases to be one of the 37 members of the FIFA Council.

Akufo-Addo, who watched the video last month, denied any knowledge of Nyantakyi's claims and has instigated a criminal investigation against the administrator for fraudulently using the President's name.

One of the harshest offenses shown was carried out by Kwesi Nyantakyi, the president of GFA and a Federation Internationale de Football Association council member, who is seen taking $65,000 from Anas' men.
