Ghana to dissolve football association over bribery allegations

Ghana to dissolve football association over bribery allegations

Kwesi Nyantakyi's apology and resignation come a day after the government announced a dissolution of the Ghana Football Association and hours after FIFA banned the embattled football president for 90 days.

The head of Ghana's soccer federation, Kwesi Nyantakyi, said on Friday he had resigned after he was suspended by global soccer body FIFA for possible ethics violations having been accused of taking kickbacks.

The football chief said "scammers" had "deceived me into thinking they were genuine persons interested in investing in our country". The Ghana Football Association issued a statement last month backing their president and saying he was innocent until proven guilty.

Cavs-Warriors 2015 Finals players: Where are they now?
By Saturday (New Zealand time ), the Warriors could be the first repeat champs since the Miami Heat did the deal in 2012 and 2013. Curry, a 30-year-old guard, broke the old mark of eight 3-pointers in a finals game set by Ray Allen of Boston in 2010.

A statement from the Ministry of Information said that the government is "shocked and outraged" by the contents of the investigations undertaken by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

President Akufo-Addo has since reported the conduct of Mr. Nyantakyi to the Criminal Investigations Department and has been subsequently charged with defrauding by false pretense.

"Having regard to the widespread nature of the apparent rot involving top GFA officials, NSA (National Sports Authority) officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees, Government has made a decision to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved", Abdul-Hamid was quoted as saying by BBC.

The EPA justified round-the-clock security by saying Pruitt "has faced an unprecedented amount of death threats against him". Trump continued, "You know that, Scott". "It's not helpful to be sure", Cornyn told reporters on Capitol Hill.

On Thursday, the government of Ghana began action to dissolve the GFA "as a result of the pervasive nature of the rot within the GFA".

Many, after watching the premiere of the investigative piece, called on the football kinpin to resign but Mr. Mornah contends that the call for the resignation of Mr. Nyantakyi is misplaced.

In the said video, Nyantakyi was seen extorting monies from investors by using the name of the President.

Fallout 76 Trailer, Release Date, and News
Bethesda didn't reveal much about the beta aside from it being used to help them work on Fallout 76's multiplayer component. There will also be new, "sleeker" card frames, while the new game client packs the game into a smaller file size.

Any FIFA ban could also affect the under-17 women's team, who are preparing for the U-17 World Cup; top club Aduana Stars, who are participating the CAF Confederation Cup; and the men's national team, who are due to play in three African Cup of Nations qualifiers later this year.
