Yusuf was found guilty of collecting bribe after he was caught on camera collecting N357, 000 ($1,000) from journalists posing as football agents who wanted him to select two players for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN).
The act was shown in a documentary that highlighted corruption in Ghanaian football by the BBC African Eye.
After the video was published, the 57-year-old was given a one-year ban from football by the NFF Ethics Committee and was immediately reinstated back to international duty post as the U-23 Olympic Eagles Coach if not for the intervention of fans and journalists as all the Nigeria Football Federation cabinet members were tagged bad eggs.
