    FIFA delegation arrives in Ghana for crucial meeting over GFA crisis

    Joy News sources say three officials from FIFA arrived in Ghana Thursday evening for a crucial meeting with the Sports Ministry following government's decision to initiate a process to dissolve the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
    The meeting will discuss recent developments at the GFA and government’s ongoing legal process to dissolve the Association following Anas Aremeyaw Anas’s investigative documentary.
    The explosive documentary captured some top officials of GFA allegedly accepting bribes to fix matches and change the natural outcome of some games.
    Former GFA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, was also seen in the video allegedly convincing undercover agents to bribe top government officials for a chance to control football in Ghana.
    The FIFA Council Member has since been charged with defrauding by false pretence and could be sentenced to prison for 25 years if found guilty.
    Also, Mr Nyantakyi's conduct in carving percentages for himself in a sponsorship for the Ghana Premier League has also led him to an investigation by FIFA who have already slapped Nyantakyi with a 90-day ban, as it looks into the allegations.
    Until this temporary ban, Nyantakyi was a member of the FIFA Council, member of the FIFA Associations Committee, First Vice President of CAF and President of Zone B of the West African Football Union (WAFU).
