-Former Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has spoken for the first time since his resignation

The embattled president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has finally spoken after his resignation and the premiere of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 video.
In this audio, he described himself as a very patient man and the more reason why he has survived all the various allegations that have been levelled against him. He also gave reasons why he resigned at the time he did.
"I dont want to be hounded. If that happens, nobody will remember your good deeds," Kwesi Nyantakyi said.
In the audio, there seems to be another which according to Gary Al-Smith, seems to be his good friend, Abdulai "Abu" Alhassan, the Northern Regional FA boss who resigned yesterday - trying to comfort him.
The person also alleged in the audio that it is some of Nyantakyi's own people who are behind the plot to bring him down now and described them as “foolish".
Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest exposé that was premiered on Wednesday, June 6, in Accra captured the GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi, among many other officials of the football governing body in Ghana taking bribes and match officials who according to the title of the expose have become the ‘number twelve’ players who influence the outcome of games.
The video also revealed that they influence selection of players and divert funds meant for sponsorship, but the likes of JF Mensah and Kweku Eyiah passed the test by rejecting the monies given them as bribes.
Following that, Mr. Nyantakyi resigned as the president of the GFA on Friday, June 8. In his resignation letter, he begged for forgiveness from the president and the vice president of Ghana, his family and coworkers for implicating them and bring shame upon them.
