President Akufo-Addo orders for the arrest of GFA President

Kwesi Nyantakyi

President Akufo-Addo has directed for the arrest of Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi for alleged influence peddling.

Nyantakyi is also to be probed for allegedly defrauding by false pretense, sources close to the Presidency, have told Graphic Online.

The call for the arrest of Nyantekyi, the longest serving GFA president, follows comments attributed to him in what our sources say are video recordings captured as part of a soon to air documentary by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas detailing corruption in Ghana football.

Nyantakyi is currently in the Republic of Madagascar on a FIFA programme.

The documentary on corruption is yet to air publicly, however Graphic Online understands that a number of high profile individuals, including the presidency and the three ex-presidents Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama and key institutions, have had a foretaste of it.
