The case was reported to FIFA who in turn, referred it to the Ethics Committee of the GFA. After sitting on the case the committee quashed the allegations leveled against the head of the Ghana Football but also disclosed, that the two other persons Obed Nketia and Christopher Forsythe will continue to appear before the committee for further investigations.

Nana Ampofo Agyei head of the Ethics Committee in interview said,

"We found that there is nothing implicating Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi because from FIFA’s investigation nothing has been found and our own investigations and also form questions put to the two gentlemen we were satisfied that there was also again nothing against him."
