- Kwesi Nyantakyi made claims that the president was in need of money because he sold his family property to finance his campaign
Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has alleged that President Akufo-Addo sold all his family properties to finance his campaign during the 2016 elections.
According to the GFA boss, Nana Addo is currently “broke” and needs money make up for all expenses he incurred en route to becoming president.
"I know for a fact that Nana Addo sold his properties to win the elections so his family is very broke. His brothers are always asking for money, therefore, the $5 million will ease the burden.''
Nyantakyi made these comments when negotiating with supposed investors in Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ explosive piece which is titled “Number 12”.
Thousands of Ghanaians trooped to the Accra International Conference Center as the investigative journalist premiered his latest piece.
The exposé captured 77 Ghanaian referees and 14 top Ghana Football Association (GFA) officials for engaging in acts of corruption.
Nyantakyi was captured telling the supposed investors that he “knows for a fact” that President Akufo-Addo is broke and can be appeased with $5 million, whiles also suggesting that Vice President, Dr.Mahamudu Bawumia’s palms be also greased with $3 million.
The CAF first vice president was arrested and subsequently interrogated last month on the orders of President Akufo-Addo, having watched excerpts of the exposé.
Nyantakyi was subsequently granted bail, but reports suggest his passports were seized by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service.
Anas’ latest expose titled “Number 12” was premiered yesterday (Wednesday) and will again be showed at the International Conference Centre today (Thursday).
