GFA dissolved by Ghana government

Ghana to dissolve football association over bribery allegations

Nyantakyi, who has been GFA president since 2005 and was elected to the FIFA Council in September 2016, was filmed by an investigative journalist in a hotel room appearing to take a $65,000 bribe from a supposed businessman seeking to sponsor the Ghanaian football league.

On Wednesday, June 6, the Adjudicatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee received a complaint /request from Anas Aremeyaw Anas through Cromwell Gray LLP, to institute investigations into the conduct of Kwesi Nyantakyi based on the content of Number 12.

The embattled president of the Ghana Football Association has resigned from office but not without apologizing to the president of Ghana. "I believe the current AG will pick it up and look into it", she said.

"I hereby apologise unreservedly to the father of the Nation, H.E. Nana Akufo Addo, H.E. the Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, Hon. Ministers and Deputy Ministers of State for indiscretion in associating them with the private conversations on the video", Nyantakyi's statement continued. "I take sole and personal responsibility for the proceedings on the video", he added.

On Thursday, the government of Ghana began action to dissolve the GFA "as a result of the pervasive nature of the rot within the GFA".

"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 chose to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved", he said.

Youth and Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah told KweséESPN that the dissolution means all football activity is on hold in the country.

The football association issued a statement last month backing their president and saying he was innocent until proven guilty.

This means Mr. Nyantakyi will not be able to vote next week to determine whether Morocco will be able to host the next World Cup.

Nyantakyi's comes two days after Anas premiered his much talked about investigative piece on football corruption in Ghana.
