- Nyantakyi himself has debunked some of the issues raised against him in the ‘Number 12’
Martin Luthor Obeing, a spokesperson to Kwesi Nyantakyi, has revealed that Nyantakyi’s appearance in Anas’ ‘Number 12’ is a result of a conspiracy between BBC and Anas.
According to Obeng, Kwesi Nyantakyi may have been the victim of that conspiracy to prevent Morocco from winning the rights to host the World Cup in 2026.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Citinewsroom.
Martin Luthor Obeng was reportedly speaking to Citi Eyewitness News on Monday, June 18, 2018.
He stated that the BBC financed Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest investigative piece to use the Ghanaian journalist as a conduit for their agenda against Nyantakyi who has shown massive support for Morocco’s World Cup bid.
“Kwesi Nyantakyi just wants Ghanaians to know that it was just a scheme against him for the fact that he was [supporting] Morocco’s bid for the 2026 World Cup against United States join-hosting it with Canada and Mexico.”
“Therefore BBC had to come in and do that scheme work against him through Anas Aremeyaw Anas. For that matter, he also had to bring out his side of the story for Ghanaians to know what his version is and also point out the inconsistencies in the whole show to the good people of Ghana,” Martin Luthor Obeng stated.
Kwesi Nyantakyi has also released an eight-page statement seeking to “address” the various allegations raised against him in the Anas’ ‘Number 12’ exposé.
According to him, the exposé that he had accepted $65,000 in banknotes in October 2017 from a supposed investor who had expressed interest in investing in Ghana football is false.
Kwesi Nyantakyi said that he was only given $40,000, explaining that that was to reimburse him for money he spent on his air travel and accommodation, rubbishing the allegations that it was a bribe.
Following the weighty allegations levelled against him in the Anas' exposé, Nyantakyi has resigned from his various positions - GFA, WAFU, CAF and FIFA, where he served as a member of the world football governing body’s Executive Council.
