"After a meeting of the Executive Committee this afternoon I chose to resign as President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA)", he said in a statement.

One of the harshest offenses shown was carried out by Kwesi Nyantakyi, the president of GFA and a Federation Internationale de Football Association council member, who is seen taking $65,000 from Anas' men.

Nyantakyi's ban was confirmed by the ethics committee on Friday.

The two-hour documentary, "When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm", is the work of undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Wednesday's public viewing was the first since it was released to the authorities last month.

The football chief said "scammers" had "deceived me into thinking they were genuine persons interested in investing in our country".

"This is by no means an admission of wrongdoing for issues on the video", Mr. Nyantakyi said in a statement sent to the GFA General Secretary on Friday.

The FBI was looking into Russian interference in the United States election and that line of inquiry led them to Trump, he said. The US Senate's Republican leader, Mitch McConnell , also discouraged talk of a self-pardon by Trump on Tuesday.

The minister said, "The documentary exposes the gross malfunctioning of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), characterized by widespread fraud, corruption and bribery".

And the government of the Republic of Ghana Akufo-Addo who was even mentioned in the video by the GFA president in his quest to use his name to collect monies from investors is taking steps to dissolve the Ghana football governing body the the rots that have engulfed it.

President Akufo-Addo has since reported the conduct of Mr. Nyantakyi to the Criminal Investigations Department and has been subsequently charged with defrauding by false pretense.

Ghana also risk being suspended from the 2026 World Cup hosting vote next week, when it had been expected to vote for fellow African country Morocco against the joint bid of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

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.

They will also drop out of the U20 World Cup.
