The Northern regional President of the Ghana Football Association, Abdulai Alhassan has resigned after being captured on tape aiding to swindle undercover reporters posing as investors. This is as a result of Anas’ exposé on the 6th of June which exposes Kwesi Nyantakyi, the Ghana Football Association President.
Abdulai, as he is popularly called, is a close associate of banned GFA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi, and was seen at all times with his boss striking sponsorship deals which will fetch them huge cuts against the ethics of football rules.
Nyantakyi resigned on Friday after FIFA slapped him with a 90-day ban following the premiering of a two-hour documentary dubbed: “Number 12 – Betrayal of The Game” under the auspices of ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Abdulai introduced the supposed investors to Kwesi Nyantakyi and traveled with him to Dubai to meet the boss of the investors where a $65,000 bribe was dished out to them.
They then demanded $15 million to grease the palms of key government officials including president Akufo-Addo to obtain strategic contracts for the investors.
Kwesi Nyantakyi is currently on a police inquiry bail.
Below is Abdulai Alhassan’s Resignation Letter:
I Abdulai Alhassan after a careful reflection on my role and action in the recent Anas Aremeyaw Anas Expose, I have decided to resign as the chairman of the Northern Regional Football Association and an Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association.
My decision is a result of deliberations I have had between with family and associates.
I wish to state my interest was to develop Ghana Football which led me to take the supposed investors to the president of the Ghana Football Association.
I hereby render an unqualified apology to my family, friends and the people I was elected to serve and the country at large.
I also sincerely apologize to Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi and all his sympathizers for being the person who led the supposed investors to him.
I hope that Ghana Football will get back to its feet from this controversy.
