Anas believes, the online petition will compel the appropriate authorities to make the man who was once a member on CAF’s Executive Committee to face the criminal charges he deserves.

Anas in a writeup on the online petition platform expressed shock that the Attorney General has failed to take up the matter despite the circumstantial evidence that compelled FIFA to ban Nyantakyi.

Police have completed investigations into likely criminal misconduct by Mr. Nyantakyi. They submitted their findings to the Attorney General last year [2018]. The Attorney General has not taken any action on the case till date. Please help us ask the Attorney General to move this case forward. Mr. Nyantakyi should face criminal prosecution over some of his misconduct, which borders on criminality,” Anas added.

According to Anas, should Kwesi Nyantakyi be made to go scot-free, it will only give credence to the weak laws that are seemingly governing Ghanaians in the country.

If Nyantakyi is not prosecuted, our collective fight against corruption will be meaningless. It will also send a signal to many citizens that the law only deals with the poor, but the rich and powerful cannot be held responsible for their actions.”
