Beleaguered ex-president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi has spoken for the first time after the corruption exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Nyantakyi was banished from the football community [Tuesday, October 30, 20018] after the FIFA Ethics Adjudicatory Committee found him guilty of having violated Article 19 (Conflict of Interest), Article 21 (Bribery and corruption) and Article 22 (Commission) of the FIFA Code of Ethics, 2012 edition.
The former CAF 1st vice-president was pictured taking $65,000 (£48,000) - a figure which has consistently disputed from an undercover reporter.
Ex-Ghana Football Association (GFA) president Kwesi Nyantakyi also broke FIFA's conflict of interest rules by accepting the monies.
Anas and his Tigereye PI investigative team sent a petition to FIFA outlining the various breaches by the once powerful Football Association President in Ghana.
It appears the world football governing have perused the petition, done with its investigation and the ruling has been damning.
Kwesi Nyantakyi will have no place in any football-related activity in the world.
The former First Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) explained that the journalist could receive several calls in a spate of 30 minutes.
For him, the whole team led by Anas Aremeyaw Anas is working to satisfy members’ monetary interests and not for the love of Ghana.
“It is business that they are doing.”
