- The GFA boss was implicated in an investigative piece known as ‘Number 12’
Award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas is reported to be on his way to The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in Switzerland to deliver a petition over GFA boss, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Graphic.com.gh, the journalist was en route to FIFA over the alleged ‘misconduct’ of Ghana’s FA boss who had been implicated in matters of corruption.
A source close to the investigative journalist revealed that the details of ‘Number 12’ was beyond Ghana and it was necessary for the exposé to be taken further up the ladder to world the governing body of football.
The source further revealed that the alleged actions of Mr. Nyantakyi which were caught on tape was against the ethics of FIFA; necessitating a formal complaint and petition to be made to the organization.
Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, on May 22, was ordered to report himself to the Criminal Investigations Department in Accra to assist in investigations of alleged acts of misconduct brought against him.
Preliminary reports indicated that the FA boss defrauded some foreign investors using the names of the President and Vice President.
FIFA, who has been made aware of the ongoing investigation, has indicated that they are closely monitoring the situation and would take appropriate action once everything had come to an end.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas, in responding to why he thought it wise to ‘clean’ the tainted name of football in Ghana, he is noted to have said, “It is for these poor folks, the duped, long-suffering fans and the numerous sports journalists some of whom I have mentioned here — journalists who get to work at the crack of dawn and stay late to bring up-to-date news to the public — that I have undertaken this ‘Number 12’ assignment”.
The investigative piece is expected to start screening for free on June 6.
