FIFA bans Kwesi Nyantakyi for life



Former Ghana FA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi has been banned for life by world football governing body FIFA.

According to FIFA, Nyantakyi is banned from taking part in all football-related activities and the ban takes effect immediately.

The life ban follows extensive investigations by FIFA’s Adjudicatory Chamber of the Independent Ethics Committee into the conduct of Mr Nyantakyi who was captured in an explosive expose by Ghanaian investigator Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

This brings to a sad the glittering career of the man considered as the most successful GFA President in the history of Ghana football.

Nyantakyi reigned as GFA President for 13 years and rose through the ranks to become the Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

He was initially suspended on 8 June for 90 days by the adjudicatory chamber of Fifa’s independent Ethics Committee. The ban was later extended for an additional 45 days on September 6.

What’s Nyantakyi’s crime

He was filmed in an undercover investigation by controversial Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter pretending to be a businessman.

Soon after the ban on 8 June Nyantakyi resigned from the posts he had held with football’s world governing body, Fifa, and the Confederation of African Football (Caf).

He left his role on the Fifa Council and stepped aside from his roles with Caf including as 1st vice-president, the most senior figure at the confederation after its president, Ahmad.

As well as the Fifa suspension Nyantakyi also resigned as president of the GFA on 8 June following an executive committee meeting.

Asamoah Gyan is better than Lionel Messi – CountryMan Songo




CountryMan Songo

Patrick Osei Agyemang known widely as Countryman Songo has made an assertion on Asamoah Gyan when he hosted him on his ‘Fire for Fire’ show on Adom TV.

According to the sports presenter, Asamoah Gyan has equal world Cup goals just as Lionel Messi even though he had appeared less in the tournament.

This according to him makes Gyan a better player than Lionel Messi.

‘Ah, Asamoah Gyan has scored 6 goals in the world cup, Messi hasn’t scored much goals in the world Cup than Gyan but you are always tweeting about Messi…. fire burn all of you”,CountryMan Songo fired Ghanaians’ – CountryMan said.

Lionel Messi, who hails from Argentina, has played in 18 career World Cup matches, over four different World Cups, and he has scored six goals in those contests.

But Gyan, who has represented Ghana at just three different World Cups (2006, 2010 and 2014) has also scored 6 goals, to become the top African goalscorer in the history of the World Cup.

Songo summed it up by entreating Ghanaians to be proud of their own son and products.
