Former GFA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi celebrates 50th birthday in style

Airnewsonline.com has sighted a photo of, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, the embattled former Ghana Football Association president as he celebrated his birthday and sported his trademark smile.

The photo showed Mr Nyantakyi in a celebratory mood as he turned a year older and was seen having fun as he cut his birthday cake.

The former GFA president who turned 50-years-old over the weekend was spotted at an undisclosed venue and was seen smiling for the cameras in celebration.

Nyantakyi came under the spotlight for the wrong reasons when he starred in Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ ‘Number 12′ documentary, which sought to expose rot and corruption in football administration in Ghana and other African countries.

The investigative video indicated that Nyantakyi used President Akufo-Addo’s name to engage in alleged shady deals.

He was also seen at a point receiving money, which according to Anas’ video, was a bribe from an undercover reporter who posed as a foreign investor.

Just days after the premiere of the much talked about the documentary from the multiple award-winning journalist, Mr Nyantakyi resigned from his position as the GFA’s president.

The video evidence capturing Nyantakyi receiving money in return for a favour led to another sanction from FIFA on which he served in an enviable position.

FIFA handed him a 90-ban and extended it with another 45 days after he served the first one. Kwesi Nyantakyi is a Ghanaian banker and a lawyer, and football administrator.

He was the president of the Ghana Football Association from December 30, 2005 until June 7, 2018.

Under his watch as GFA president, Ghana’s national football team, the Black Stars, qualified for three consecutive FIFA World Cups: 2006, 2010 and 2014.

In the 2010 edition of the World Cup staged in South Africa, the Black Stars reached the quarter finals of the competition to become the third African country to reach that stage.

In 2009, the Black Satellites, became the first African side to win the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.
