President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi has been provisionally banned for 90 days by the Ethics Committee of the world football governing body, Fifa.
This comes after damning revelations of breaches of the Fifa Code of Ethics by the top football administrator who serves as the 1st Vice of Caf and a Fifa Council a member.
A Fifa statement Friday June 8, 2018 reads:
“The chairperson of the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee has provisionally banned the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and FIFA Council member, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, for a duration of 90 days. 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.”
Kwesi Nyantakyi’s cover was blown in a sting operation on corruption in football by award-winning Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
