- The GFA has thrown their support for the embattled president, Kwesi Nyantakyi
- Kwesi Nyantakyi is currently assisting the CID with investigations
- He was implicated in the video by Anas Aremeyaw Anas
Kwesi Nyantakyi is still the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA). This is according to a press statement issued out by the general secretary of the Association, Isaac Addo, who has stated that the embattled sports executive is only assisting with investigations.
Few days since he turned himself in for investigations at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), there have been claims that Kwasi Nyantakyi could resign from his post with immediate effect but the GFA discounted this claim.
"Following a meeting of the Executive Committee of the GFA on Thursday, the body wishes to state that nothing has changed in terms of the GFA hierarchy and Mr. Nyantakyi still remains the President of the Ghana Football Association," the statement revealed.
Also, the GFA insists "the President remains innocent until he is proven guilty of all charges leveled against him."
The GFA boss who has been accused of transacting some fraudulent deals following Anas’ undercover investigations was picked up by the police CID upon arrival from CAF assignments in Morocco and Egypt for questioning. President Akufo-Addo on Tuesday issued and immediate arrest order on Kwasi Nyantakyi for allegedly using his name and the seat of government fraudulently.
The president after having been privy to investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas' Number 12 undercover documentary angrily called for Mr Nyantakyi’s arrest. Meanwhile, the leadership of the Ghana Police Service has assured the public of its resolve to follow due processes in the investigation.
