Anas video: Kwesi Nyantakyi resigns

The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kwesi Nyantakyi has resigned from his position.

According to him, the decision was borne out of a meeting he had with the Executive Committee of the Association on Friday.

In a statement he said, ‘After a meeting of the Executive Committee this afternoon I decided to resign as President of the Ghana Football Association’.

Mr Nyantakyi was captured in a video by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas for using President Akufo-Addo’s name to dupe foreign possible investors.

The statement added, 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.”

The government on Thursday disclosed its plans to dissolve the football association.

Meanwhile, FIFA on Friday announced a 90 day ban on Mr Nyantakyi from all football related activities.
