Former Ghana Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantakyi has broken his silence after his highly publicised corruption scandal last year. According to him, insiders at the Ghana Football Association who disliked him, paid investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to bring him down.
n a telephone interview with Accra-based Oman FM, Nyantakyi claims Anas did not carry out the investigation in the interest of the public but rather in fulfilment of the interests of his “haters” at the GFA who he claims sponsored Anas’ work.
“Anas demanded $150,000 from me to shelve the video. He was even demanding 400,000 dollars because the project is a sponsored project.
“The people at the GFA who didn’t like me paid $400,000 for Anas to do that [to me],” he said.
It is the first time Nyantakyi has spoken since the Number 12 documentary, and he did not mince words comparing Anas’ investigative firm, TigerEye PI as a “criminal organisation which operates like ISIS.”
