Few months ago, disgraced Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi, resigned from his roles at the FIFA council and CAF executive committee. Kwesi who was first vice president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), was captured on video allegedly accepting a gift of $65,000 as gifts intended to appreciate a projected role in facilitating meetings with the Ghanaian President and establishment of businesses in the country.

The video which was released by controversial journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, caused the dissolution of the GFA and earned Kwesi a 90 day ban by FIFA. The documentary that was screened to the public showed several officials including referees, taking cash to fix matches in the country’s local league and other tournaments including the continent’s champions league.
