5 of Kwesi Nyantakyi's fiercest critics

5 of Kwesi Nyantakyi's fiercest critics

On Tuesday afternoon, President Nana Akufo-Addo ordered the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to arrest the Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The order followed a private viewing of Anas Aremeyaw Anas' latest investigative piece by President Akufo-Addo.

In the video, Kwesi Nyantakyi was spotted using the name of the President to solicit a bribe from some football investors.

After news of the order broke, there has been wild jubilation on social media as many felt Kwesi Nyantakyi had to go.

Though many Ghanaians have expressed their excitement over the development, there are some prominent football personalities who should be the happiest of all as they have been constant adversaries of the embattled FA boss.

Here is YEN.com.gh's list of five such people.

1. Countryman Songo:

5 of Kwesi Nyantakyi's fiercest critics

Adom TV/Asempa FM presenter, Patrick Osei Agyemang aka Countryman Songo is known to be one of the staunchest critics of Kwesi Nyantakyi.

He has used his 'Fire for Fire' programme to lambaste Nyantakyi at every given opportunity.

His numerous accusations that Nyantakyi was corrupt and had to step down led to the GFA boss suing him for defamation.

Songo's troubles with Nyantakyi has seen him literally lose his job as he has been taken off the air.

With Nyantakyi's current fate, many have pointed out that Songo has been vindicated.

Songo will definitely be happy for the development.

2. George Afriyie:

George Afriyie, was until recently, the Vice President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and a close confidante of Kwesi Nyantakyi.

He was ousted after an emergency GFA Executive Committee meeting just a few days after announcing his decision to run for the FA presidency.

Though the official statement announcing Afriyie's sacking did not give the exact reasons, close sources suggested Nyantakyi had orchestrated the whole move.

According to reports, Nyantakyi had fallen out with Afriyie over some comments he had made and was thus bent to make him not to contest for the presidency.

As things stand now, Afriyie should be jubilating because he may have a clean shot at the FA presidency without any interference from his former boss.

3. Alhaji Grusah:

5 of Kwesi Nyantakyi's fiercest critics

The founder and bankroller of Kumasi King Faisal has been a long time adversary of Nyantakyi. Grusah has criticised Nyantakyi's leadership methods at t FA and often blames him for King Faisal's relegation from the Ghana Premier League.

Grusah's problems with Nyantakyi date back to when the embattled FA boss surfaced on the Ghanaian football scene somewhere in 2003 when the outspoken Grusah contested him for the then-vacant GHALCA Vice Chairmanship position and lost.

Grusah has not hidden his dislike for Nyantakyi's method and will most likely feel vindicated.

4. Randy Abbey:

Randy is said to have fallen out with Nyantakyi over how the FA was managing the national teams, especially the Black Stars after the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Since he left his role at the FA, Randy has been a constant critic of the Nyantakyi administration and they once traded corruption allegations.

The current situation will come as a vindication of his claims.

5. Fred Pappoe:

Fred Pappoe was reported to have been displeased with the decline of local football and he had blamed it on Nyantakyi.

Reports from some quarters suggest that Pappoe is one of the key football people are supporting George Afriyie's bid to take over the FA.

Nyantakyi's situation should, therefore, come as a form of relief for Pappoe.
