The embattled former Ghana Football Association chairman Kwesi Nyantakyi has resigned from the world soccer ruling body FIFA. He also left his position as Ghana football top dog last week.

The Confederation of African Football also announced that Kwesi Nyantakyi also offered his resignation as first vice president of the continental body.

CAF President Ahmad has announced that a special election meeting will be held on September 30th 2018 in Egypt to fill the vacancy.

Candidates will come from the English-speaking group in CAF, the president says.

FIFA’s ethics committee suspended the Ghanaian official for 90 days during its investigation after a television documentary last week showed Nyantakyi taking $65,000 in cash from undercover reporters posing as businessmen to secure favor with Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo and other government officials.
