Kwesi Nyantakyi has resigned as the second most powerful man in African football and as well as a member of the FIFA Council after the Anas exposé dented his hard earned reputation.

The 49-year-old Wa born erstwhile GFA President relinquished his position as the GFA boss after he was captured receiving monies suspected to be bribe in the Anas exposé video.

FIFA reacted after investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas petitioned the world football governing body by slapping a 90 month ban on Nyantakyi, before the former GFA President boss threw in the towel as the leader of the Ghana FA.
