Wife of embattled former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi is convinced her husband was under a spell in his dealings with the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team.
Christine-Marie Nyantakyi in an exclusive interview on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV on Tuesday said her husband who is an astute lawyer is too meticulous to have been caught on camera taking money for a non-existent sponsorship deal.
“They brought $40,000 first; and then later on, they brought $60,000 dollars.
"I have not gathered the courage to watch the full video, because the small that I watched, I knew that the way he is talking; that is not my husband; something might have gone wrong,” she bemoaned.
When the host asked if he could have been under a spell or some incantations, she responded in the affirmative.
Mrs Nyantakyi said her husband initially had some doubts about the deal but went ahead after he felt convinced by Abu, who was a member of Tiger Eye.
Meanwhile, Kwesi Nyantakyi has been banned from all football activities for the rest of his life and has been fined 500,000 Swiss Francs (an equivalent of Ghc2, 414,276.46 and $497,490.00 respectively), for various breaches of FIFA’s code of ethics after the exposé.
He has filed for an appeal against the life ban by FIFA at the Court of Arbitration for Sport stating the sanction is too harsh.
