"After a meeting of the Executive Committee this afternoon I chose to resign as President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA)", he said in a statement.
Days after GFA boss was invited by the Police CID, reports emerged in a section of the media said the embattled president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi in his statement to the CID over allegations of corruption indicated that former president John Mahama received $8 million bribe from some investors he [Kwesi Nyantakyi] had engaged with.
Nyantakyi was accused in an explosive documentary called "Number 12", aired on Wednesday by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, of soliciting bribes amounting to several million dollars.
He also boasted of his relationship with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, suggesting the president and his vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, were susceptible to bribery, and that the two could be influenced with $5 million and $3 million respectively.
