- Editor in chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr., has given the reason why the president was made to watch the latest video by Anas
- An earlier Facebook post by Nana Addo had warned against allegations when it comes to scandals
- The arrest has been sparked by claims that the GFA boss stated that the president is in his pocket
It has been reported that the reason Nana Addo was made to watch portions of the latest expose by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was just to add his reaction to the video before it premieres on June 6th.
This is according to the editor in chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr., arrangements were made with the Jubilee House for the president, whose name was mentioned in portions of the video, to watch it and his reactions recorded and added to the investigative piece.
But it seemed the plan did not go right as the president rather called for the immediate arrest of the GFA president.
Nana Addo's response.
Considering the level of allegations and claims that took place in the wake of Kwesi Nyantakyi's arrest, it seems the president had already predicted and forewarned against these allegations months ago.
“I think it is also worth pointing out that we should be careful about the new trend that appears to be emerging, where any allegation, no matter how spurious, quickly gains the character of a ‘scandal’ or ‘an act of corruption’ even when it is shot down,” the president on Friday tweeted his previous concern at a media encounter on January 17, 2018.
After watching just five minutes of the controversial video, Nana Addo ordered for the GFA president to be arrested. This led to the embattled football powerhouse cutting short his trip in Morrocco and reporting to the CID which silently whisked him out of the Kotoka International Airport.
