Kwesi Nyantakyi’s life ban reduced to twelve years
It wasn’t until mid-year June 2018 that Anas’ exposé brought the football circles to it’s knees following a massive undercover of deep-seated corruption practices in the game.
This revelation, however, had heads rolling on different sides of the table, four months after the exposé, one of the notable names on the lips and minds of the masses was the former GFA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, who was pictured taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter as many felt he had reached a cult figure status.
Mr. Nyantakyi was been banned for life from all football-related activities by FIFA in October 2018.
According to reports from Kumasi-based, Nhyira FM Sports, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has reduced Kwesi Nyantakyi’s life ban to 12 years.
The ban has been reduced following a successful appeal by the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss.
Prior to his ban, he served as GFA President for 13 years, WAFU president, vice-president of CAF, and a member of the FIFA Council.
Aside from the ban, he was fined 500,000 Swiss francs (£390,000).
