Only a miracle will save Kwesi Nyantakyi, President of the Ghana Football Football (GFA) from the allegation of defrauding under false pretense, says Veteran Sports Journalist, Kwabena Yeboah.
Speaking on JOY FM, Yeboah stated that critics seem to be happy about the situation because it is believed that Nyantakyi is arrogant and power drunk.
Prseident Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 lodged a complaint with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) accusing the GFA capo of defrauding by false pretence.
Nyantakyi is said to have taken money from some people with the promise that he will grant them access to the presidency.
He is said to have been captured in an upcoming expose by Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas titled Number 12.’
Nyantakyi has been president of the Ghanaian Football Association for thirteen years.
On Thursday, May 17, 2018, Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako Jnr, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper disclosed that a prominent lawyer tried to bribe Investigate Journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Anas’ new work titled ‘Number 12″ is said to be an expose about the corruption at the Ghana Football Association.
“Look, this one, this GFA one, there was an attempt to bribe him, OK, There was an attempt because there is a lawyer – and I’m sorry I won’t mention his name, of course, he may know it’s him, maybe he is watching us – who is close to Anas and who knew that this job was going on, and I think he went and did some ‘Okro mouth’, so, somebody now tries to give him money to go and give to Anas,” stated Baako on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana programme on Thursday, May 17, 2018.
“The lawyer took the money and was scared to go and deliver it to Anas. So, eventually, he [lawyer] had to go back to the man and say: ‘[I couldn’t deliver the bribe], take it’. But of course, we have found out. He’s a lawyer, very good lawyer, prominent lawyer.”
The documentary will be premiered at the Accra International Conference Centre on Wednesday, June 6, 2018.
