Former deputy Youth and Sports Minister, Hon. Joseph Yamin has advised the football people to abandon their ‘free Nyantakyi movement’ because the President himself is no more interested in the case.
A section of Ghanaian football administrators have launched a movement to petition the President of the Republic to advice the Attorney Generals Department to drop Court Charges against the former GFA President, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Former CAF vice Chairman and FIFA executive council member Mr. Nyantakyi is battling the Ghana’s Attorney Generals Department over fraud charges in an incident that happened in the Anas expose three years ago.
Reacting to the movement by the football people on a Kumasi based media outlet Agyenkwa FM, Hon. Joseph Yamin said it is unnecessary to revisit the case because the president has forgotten about it.
“Not only Ghana Football has seen corruption scandals. Even FIFA itself had the same situation with Sepp Blatter, the former FIFA Boss.
In Italy the same cases were recorded. But here, the president is in someone’s pocket and the case has died long time. The government said they don’t have interest in it again so I don’t know why the football administrators are resurrecting this case again, they should let the sleeping dog lie.” Hon.Joseph Yamin told Agyenkwa Fm 101.9 in Kumasi
The Former president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi was slapped with charges including fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud
Principal State Attorney Victoria Asiedua told an Accra High Court on Wednesday that Mr Nyantakyi and former Executive Council member, Abdulai Alhassan executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on behalf of a non-existent company claiming to be attracting sponsorship for the Ghana Premier League.
They are further alleged to have demanded $12 million from the supposed investors promising to land them major contracts in Ghana.
