JUST IN: CAS Reduces Former GFA Boss Kwesi Nyantakyi’s Lifetime Ban

The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has reduced former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president Kwesi Nyantakyi’s lifetime ban from football to twelve years (12).

According to a report filed by Kumasi-based Nhyira FM, the verdict was delivered to FIFA and the astute football administrator.

In October 2018, FIFA handed a lifetime ban from all football-related activities to former CAF first vice president, Kwesi Nyantakyi after four-month investigation by the Fifa Ethics Committee.

Nyantakyi was pictured taking $65,000 from an undercover reporter Anas Aremyaw Anas pretending to be a businessman in a video exposé dubbed #Number12.

The investigation invited Nyantakyi to a luxury hotel in the Middle East with the promise of meeting a wealthy businessman it said was interested in a sponsorship deal with the GFA.

In the film, Nyantakyi went on to both negotiate and write up the sponsorship deal on behalf of the GFA, which could have allowed a cut to go to a company he owned.

Nyantakyi was also been fined $500,000 by FIFA.

Ghana Football Association (GFA) announced on 8 June, hours after the ban was put in place, that Nyantakyi had stepped down as its president.

Kwesi Nyantakyi was the second most powerful official in African football and also a member of the Fifa Council.
