Many took to social media to have their say after the world's football governing body announced its final verdict on the renowned administrator

Interestingly, the chorus that greeted Kwesi Nyantakyi's Fifa life ban was more reprimanding and mockful than sympathetic.

On Tuesday, the former Ghana Football Association boss was handed the big punishment for violating three Fifa codes of conflict of interest, bribery and corruption, and commission after being caught in an investigative documentary on politics, corruption and match-fixing in June. 

Nyantakyi, who was also first-vice president of continental football's governing body Caf, president of regional football unit Wafu and a member of the Fifa Council at the time of the exposé, was initially handed a provisional 90-day ban, which was later extended for 45 days.

There could be more trouble for the renowned administrator, who celebratred his 49th birthday on Saturday, as he is still under police investigation on order of Ghana president Nana Akufo-Addo.

As expected, social media was set on fire by Fifa's final pronouncement on the man who led Ghanaian football for 13 years.
