Nana Fritz, a football administrator has admitted that he wasn’t in anyway surprised when the news came that the former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi, was banned by FIFA after their investigations proofed he was culpable to the allegations.
He revealed this to the host of Susubiribi Morning Show, Captain Kofi Wusu on Radio1FM when he called him on Wednesday October, 31 2018.
According to him the law has taken its cause and we must respect it.
This came when he was giving his opinion on the life ban given to Kwesi Nyantakyi following FIFA’s Advise on Anas’ Number 12 documentary on Bribery and Corruption in Ghana Football.
“The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has banned Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level,” a Fifa statement of Tuesday reads.
“The adjudicatory chamber found Mr. Nyantakyi guilty of having violated art. 19 (Conflicts of interest), art. 21 (Bribery and corruption) and art. 22 (Commission) of the FIFA Code of Ethics, 2012 edition.
“As a consequence, Mr Nyantakyi is banned for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level. Additionally, a fine in the amount of CHF 500,000 has been imposed on Mr Nyantakyi.
Aside from being Ghana FA president at the time of the exposé, Nyantakyi was also first-vice president of CAF, president of WAFU and a member of the prestigious FIFA Council.
