The country’s football association chief who has been in hot waters recently, following an alleged fraudulent activities has received support from Caf
Caf executive committee member and president of Liberia Football Association, Musa Bility, has insisted that Kwesi Nyantakyi will soon be found not guilty of all the charges levelled against him by Ghana’s security services.
Nyantakyi was invited by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of his native country on ” defrauding under false pretences” on orders of Ghana president Nana Akufo-Addo, after an investigation done by renowned undercover Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas allegedly captured using names of high-ranking government officials to defraud foreign investors.
Although, the full video of the investigations which is basically about football and politics and has been named ‘Number 12’, will be publicly screened on June 6 in Accra, Nyantakyi has been subsequently granted bail and is assisting the police with investigations.
“Kwesi Nyantakyi is a good man. His credibility and integrity is undoubted and everyone at Caf is very confident he will come out clean,” Bility told Beach FM.
“I’m not surprised with the current situation Kwesi Nyantakyi finds himself in his country. This is because allegations of bribery and corruption against Football Association presidents as well as their involvement in governmental manipulations are gradually becoming normal practices in Africa.
“Many people believe football administrators are corrupt but that’s not the case. Nyantakyi shouldn’t be defined by this current predicaments alone, since we believe he will be free soon. He has a lot of goods to still offer African football,” he added.
Nyantakyi, who is in his third term of office, became Ghana FA president in 2005, succeeding Dr. Nyaho-Nyaho Tamakloe.
