Kwesi Nyantakyi’s apology and resignation come a day after the government announced a dissolution of the Ghana Football Association and hours after FIFA banned the embattled football president for 90 days.
Mr Nyantakyi resigned after a meeting the Executive Committee of the Football Association Friday.
He had been captured in an undercover investigation conducted by the TigerEye PI in which he made damning commentaries about the president of the country and his vice as well as other ministers of state.
He also received an undeserved $65,000 from the supposed business who was, in reality, an undercover journalist.
A release signed by the embattled president said his comments in the conversation were acts of “indiscretion.”
