The CAF first vice president was recorded transacting ‘shady’ deals with supposed investors and advising them on how to short-change clubs in the Ghana Premier League when signing up for a sponsorship.

Although Nyantakyi has since resigned from his post as GFA boss, he wants to be remembered for his good deeds rather than the bad ones.

According to him, this was the right time to step down, insisting he did not want to be "hounded" out of office.

“When I think about it that’s why I want to take off a rest and have my peace. This is the best time. I don’t want to be hounded out of office. That way, people will always remember you with that bad thing you were sacked. They won’t remember anything good about you,” Nyantakyi said in a recorded conversation following his resignation.

“I’m a very patient person, that’s why I’ve survived all these things. I always believe that God is the one who decides everything….. If I even resign today from GFA, CAF and FIFA, I will thank God [because] God has taken me very far [looking at] where I came from.”

Meanwhile, the former GFA boss has also been handed 90-day provisional ban by FIFA after being implicated.
