World football’s governing body Fifa has banned former Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi for life from all football-related activities following the revelations of the “Number12” exposé.
The Ex-CAF Vice President has also been slapped with a $500,000 fine for several breaches of ethics, according to FIFA.
First screened on June 6, the investigative documentary was produced by renowned undercover Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye Private Investigations Team.
Nyantakyi was captured on videos negotiating a deal with businessmen and accepting a bribe of $65,000 to help establish an oil business in his native country.
Also, he was filmed while negotiating how to create a fake agency to pocket 20 per cent of a supposed five-year sponsorship deal for the Ghana Premier League worth $15 million. He would’ve been $3.7 million richer if everything had gone as planned.
