Nyantakyi, who is also a member of the FIFA council, was pictured taking $65,000 from an undercover reporter, who posed as a business man.

FIFA have given Nyantakyi a 90-day ban from all football related activities with immediate effect.

As a result, Ghana's Information Minister Mustapha Abdul-Hamid says they will dissolve the Football Association.

"Having regard to the widespread nature of the apparent rot involving top GFA officials, NSA (National Sports Authority) officials, match commissioners, football administrators and referees, Government has decided to take immediate steps to have the GFA dissolved," Abdul-Hamid was quoted as saying by BBC.
 
The Football Association has also since confirmed that Nyatakyi has stepped down as president of the GFA.
