Excerpts of the statement Kwesi Nyantakyi made to the police claiming the 'businessmen' he met with told him they gave $8 million to the National Democratic Congress and President John Mahama in 2016 have surfaced online.
An investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team allegedly captured the Ghana Football Association boss using the names of President Akufo-Addo, Vice President Bawumia and other top government officials to demand ‘bribe’ from some supposed foreign investors into the country.
The GFA boss was called in for investigations on Wednesday, May 23, after President Akufo-Addo had made a report to the police for using his name in a business transaction in an investigative piece by Anas.
Mr. Nyantakyi is reported to have said that his conversation with Anas’ agent had been edited, challenging the investigative journalist to play the unedited full conversation if he was not up to any mischief.
Reports suggested that person who posed as the agent for Anas in the interview with Nyantakyi claimed to the effect that the Sheikh supported the NDC’s campaign with the $8 million.
Barely hours to the public screening of the piece, Nyantakyi's statement to the police is out in the public domain.
