He indicated that in the coming days, he would address the media on issues raised in the video.

The GFA President, ahead of his resignation, was banned from all football-related activities for 90 days by the world football governing body, FIFA.

Nyantakyi, who is also a member of the Fifa Council, the world football body's legislative organ, was filmed in a hotel room allegedly taking a $65,000 bribe from a supposed businessman seeking to sponsor the Ghanaian football league.
