The disgraced former President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi is reportedly preparing to appeal FIFA’s lifetime ban and the CHF 500,000 fine at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Yesterday, the FIFA Ethics Adjudicatory Committee announced that it has placed a lifetime ban and a fine on Kwesi Nyantakyi for breaching ethical and administrative procedure based on an investigation conducted by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Anas’ Number 12 investigation looked into corrupt practices among football officials in Ghana and Africa at large.

Kwesi Nyantakyi, is perhaps, the most high profile casualty in the investigation who had to resign from his positions at FIFA, CAF, WAFU and the GFA.

However, in a statement from the Kwesi Nyantakyi, he said: “my  legal advisors are under my instructions to urgently appeal the decision as I think it was unfair, harsh and unwarranted.”

“I wish to express my shock and deep sadness after receiving the decision from the FIFA Ethics Adjudicatory Committee on Tuesday,” said.

I wish to express my shock and deep sadness after receiving the decision from the FIFA Ethics Adjudicatory Committee on Tuesday

My legal advisors are under my instructions to urgently appeal the decision as I think it was unfair, harsh and unwarranted.

I will use all the legal channels available to seek redress and establish the facts I presented to the committee.

Even though I have already resigned from all my football positions, it is important I establish the facts with the sole aim of clearing my name.

At this moment I am unable to provide any further details as my lawyers are reviewing the facts for appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the people of Ghana, Africa and indeed across the globe for the overwhelming support and outpouring of sympathy.

All the best to Kwesi Nyantakyi.
