- Kwesi Nyantakyi has said he is sad and shocked over the decision of FIFA to ban and fine him
- Nyantakyi has described FIFA’s decision as “unfair, harsh, and unwarranted”
- He said he won’t rest until he ensures justice is served him
Embattled former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has spoken on his ban and fine imposed on him by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).
In a statement released by Nyantakyi and sighted by YEN.com.gh on social media, he has described FIFA’s decision to ban him as “unfair, harsh, and unwarranted”
According to him, he has tasked his lawyers to as a matter of urgency appeal to FIFA on his life ban and huge fine.
Nyantakyi added that he would not rest until he uses all the legal channels to ensure that FIFA serves him with justice.
This, he revealed, is for the purposes of clearing his name, even though he has already resigned his position as the president of Ghana GFA.
“I wish to express my shock and deep sadness over after receiving the decision from the FIFA Ethics Adjudicating Committee on Tuesday. My legal advisors are under my instruction to urgently appeal the decision as I think it’s unfair, harsh and unwarranted”.
“I will use all 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 that I establish the facts with the sole aim of clearing my name,” part of Nyantakyi’s statement reads.
In an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, FIFA indicated that it had banned Nyantakyi from all football-related activities at both the national and international level.
This means that, he could no longer hold any administrative position, take part himself or engage in another thing that has to do with football.
Meanwhile, the Ghana government through the Attorney General, had indicated that the state lacked evidence to prosecute Kwesi Nyantakyi.
