GFA President Nyantaki Suspended For 90 Days After Corruption Allegations

Ghana Football Association (FA) President, Kwesi Nyantaki, has been provisionally suspended 90 days by world football’s governing body, FIFA, after he was filmed taking cash gifts in a documentary.

Nyantaki, who has been GFA President since 2005 and was elected to the FIFA council in September 2016, is also under FIFA investigation for possible ethics violence.

The suspension is coming just one day after the Ghanaian government dissolved the GFA due to level of corruption uncovered by the aforementioned documentary spearheaded by investigative journalist Anam Anam.

Nyantaki has remained speechless in the face of multiple requests for comment though the GFA has revealed that it would cooperate with any investigation.

His woes began after he was filmed in a hotel room appearing to take a $65,000 bribe from a supposed businessman seeking to sponsor the Ghanaian football league.
