The former British High Commissioner to Ghana, Mr. Jon Benjamin has waded into the fresh allegations levelled against the president of the Ghana Football Association, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi in an exposé and has taken a swipe at him.
Jon Benjamin who is noted for taking swipes at some Ghanaian celebrities, this time channeled his guns towards the officials of the Ghana Football Association.
In a number of Twitter posts, the former high commissioner mocked the officials of the GFA after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ordered the arrest of Kwesi Nyantakyi for defrauding some investors under false pretense.
Jon Benjamin posted, “We need a consignment of Obinim stickers sent over to Morocco urgently please, by whichever route is most coefficient. Thank you.”
In yet another post he made on Twitter, he inquired, “Anyone seen Mr Sannie Daara? Asking for a friend.”
The president of the GFA is alleged to have used the names of the President and Vice President to solicit for bribes worth $8 million in total.
He is alleged to have said, “Ghana is the easiest place to do business. All you have to do is to give the President of Ghana $5m and the Vice President $3m. I have the President in my pocket. I see him every day. As for the refs, all you need is to give them GHC20 and girls and they are sorted.”
The GFA president who was on official duty in Morocco when the news broke is expected to fly back into the country to explain his comments.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ exposé dubbed ‘Number 12’ is expected to air on June 6 and many stakeholders have hinted it to be very explosive due to the massive rot it would uncover at the GFA.
