GFA officials have not fled the country - Nyantakyi
President of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi has rubbished claims that top officials of his organization have started leaving the shores of Ghana in anticipation of an expose titled Number 12, by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Veteran Journalist and partner of Anas, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has hinted that the investigative piece is explosive and has the tendency to paralyze the careers of politicians and key figures within the football domain.
So far as I know, no FA official has left the country over that.
The only two people I know are out of Ghana at the moment is my good self and General Secretary Isaac Addo.
Both of us are on official CAF duty.
We are both returning latest by Thursday.
Running the football is not a full-time job for the GFA Executive Committee so if someone travels to do his private business how does that amount to running away?
For someone to suggest that we are running away is pure mischief,” he told Rosalind Amoh of Graphic Sports.
The FA President has been in the limelight in recent times following his fallout and subsequent expulsion of Vice President of the FA George Afriyie.
The move has raised questions about his intentions to seek re-election in 2019 when his current tenure comes to an end despite stating on record that he will not seek a return to power.
