- Former President Mahama's name has popped in the bribery scandal involving Kwesi Nyantakyi
- According to reports, the former president's government is said to have taken $8m from some investors
- This was reportedly revealed by Nyantakyi to the police following his arrest
Former President John Mahama's name has popped up in the investigations over Anas Aremeyaw Anas' latest investigative piece.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, who has spoken to Nyantakyi, the "investors" (Anas' people) told him (Nyantakyi) that they contributed $8 million to Mahama's campaign.
Then Nyantakyi said, according to Ken Agyapong, that if they contributed that much to a government that lost the election, then they should be prepared to pay even more for to the current government
The embattled FA president was caught in a video using the names of the president, Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia to solicit bribes from some people who were disguised as investors into the Ghanaian economy.
The president who was not happy with the excerpts of the video shown to him, reported the incident to the police which led to the arrest of Nyantakyi.
He has since been charged with defrauding by false pretense.
It is not yet known if Nyantakyi made mention of this in his statement to the police but judging from the fact that those 'investors' were not real, it can be safely concluded that their suppoaes contribution to Mahama's campaign is fake too.
