My apology is not an admission of wrong doing - Kwesi Nyantakyi
Embattled President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi who just resigned from his position has rendered an unqualified apology to President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo for comments he made in Anas’ latest expose, #Number 12.
In the apology which was contained in his resignation letter, Mr Nyantakyi also asked for forgiveness from Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, Ministers and Deputy Ministers of State for his indiscretion in associating them with the private conversations in the Anas video.
“I hereby apologise unreservedly to the father of the Nation, H.E. Nana Akufo Addo, H.E. the Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, Hon. Ministers and Deputy Ministers of State for indiscretion in associating them with the private conversations on the video.
I wish to clarify that at no time prior to or subsequent to any deliberations on the video did I consult, contact or inform any Government official about discussions on the video. I take sole and personal responsibility for the proceedings on the video.”
I wish to apologise to my family, work colleagues, friends, associates and the people of Ghana for the disappointment my indiscretion has caused them. This is by no means an admission of wrong doing for issues on the video” he said.
Kwesi Nyantakyi’s apology comes a day after the government announced steps to dissolves the Ghana Football Association and hours after FIFA banned him for 90 days to commence investigations.
The GFA president was captured in an undercover investigation conducted by the TigerEye PI in which he made damning commentaries about the president of the country and his vice as well as other ministers of state.
Mr. Nyantakyi in the video was captured receiving an amount of $65,000 from a supposed business man who in reality was an undercover journalist.
