FIFA Ban Ghana FA President

Ghana to dissolve football association over bribery allegations

"Having regard to the widespread nature of the apparent rot involving top GFA officials, NSA [National Sports Authority] officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees, government has made a decision to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved", he said.

Mr Nyantakyi was filmed in a hotel room appearing to take a $65,000 bribe from a supposed businessman seeking to sponsor the Ghanaian football league.

The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, has dissolved the country's football association in response to the revelation illuminating the corrupt practices of Kwesi Nyantakyi's led board.

Abdul-Hamid said interim measures would soon be announced. "The GFA dissolved", the Sports Ministed is quoted to have told Joy FM.

"This means all football activity is on hold", he began.

Ghana football boss Kwesi Nyantakyi, a member of FIFA's decision-making council, is under investigation for possible ethics violations and has been provisionally suspended for 90 days, FIFA said on Friday.

Ghana's U-20 team also won a historic World Cup under his reign.

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.
