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 ban may be as a result of a Football expose by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas which captured the GFA President engaging in fraudulent acts.
