BRIBERY: Ghana FA Board Dissolved
President Nana Akufo-Addo is not happy over a viral video that showed Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi receiving cash gift.
According to FIFA and Ghana FA rules, it is an offence for any board member or match official to collect or give cash gifts.
Kwesi Nyantakyi was pictured in a BBC video, taking $65,000 (N23.4m) from an undercover reporter pretending to be a businessman keen to invest in Ghanaian football. He has not commented on the allegations.
In a swift reaction to the viral video, Sports Minister Isaac Asiama said the association had been "dissolved with immediate effect".
Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, Ghana's information minister, said the government had "decided to take immediate steps to have the GFA (Ghana Football Association) dissolved", citing the "widespread nature of the apparent rot".
Nyantakyi is vice president of the Confederation of African Football and also a member of the Fifa Council.
