The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA ), has banned Kwesi Nyantekyi for life.
Nyantakyi has been banned from all football-related activities.
The embattled former GFA President has also been fined CHF500,000, equivalent to $497,000, for several breaches of Code and Ethics of FIFA.
This is contained in a statement released by FIFA which is circulating on social media as sighted by YEN.com.gh.
In the statement dated 30.10.2018, FIFA stated that Nyantakyi's ban "comes into force immediately".
It revealed that the former GFA Boss would not take part in any football-related activities at both the national and international level.
Nyantakyi's ban follows the investigative piece by Ghanaian and worldwide acclaimed journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, dubbed 'Number 12'.
The investigative piece after its premier in June, sparked heated controversy in Ghana, with many people calling for the head of Nyantakyi for being found in a "bad manner".
FIFA has thus ruled that Nyantakyi has been found guilty of the offences he committed in Anas' video, hence his ban.
"The adjudicatory chamber found Mr. Nyantakyi guilty of having violated art. 19 (Conflict of interests), art.21 (bribery and corruption) and art. 22 (commission) of FIFA Code o Ethics, the 2012 edition."
"As a consequence, Mr. Nyantakyi is banned for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports and any other) at both national and international level. Additionally, a fine of CHF 500,000 has been imposed on Mr. Nyantakyi," part of the statement reads.
Meanwhile, Kwesi Nyantakyi sued Anas for defamation and other damages, and the two are battling out in court.
In a related development, the government of Ghana through the Attorney General, revealed in an earlier report that the state lacked evidence to prosecute Kwesi Nyantakyi.
