The embattled 49-year-old has come under intense pressure in the past week after being captured on camera compromising his position as head of Ghana’s FA.

Nyantakyi 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.

According to the CEO of Wa All Stars, Oduro Nyarko, Nyantakyi is in stable mind despite all that has transpired in the past week, and has returned to work at his private law firm.

“Kwesi Nyantakyi is alright and he is still working at his private law firm," Oduro Nyarko told Accra-based Adom FM on Monday.

Nyantakyi was elected as GFA president in December 2005 after a landslide victory over four other candidates.

However, his resignation means a fresh elections are expected to be held for the Association to elect a new leader.
