Written by admin on May 23, 2018
Ghana Football Association boss Kwesi Nyantakyi is being interrogated by the police after President Nana Akufo-Addo ordered an investigation into allegations of fraud against him.
Mr Nyantakyi was picked up by police at the international airport in the capital, Accra, after flying in from Morocco, local media reports.
Mr Nyantekyi is apparently caught on video sing the name of President Akufo-Addo and other senior government officials to induce “potential investors” to part with money.
He has not yet commented on the allegation.
The video is part of a TV documentary by well-known investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas on corruption in Ghana football.
It is due to be broadcast on 6 June.
Mr Nyantakyi has been the president of the Ghana FA for more than a decade. It was under his presidency that Ghana qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 2006.
The Ghana Football Association is an autonomous body and it is unclear whether he will be forced to step down until the investigation is concluded
