Nyantakyi did not say Nana Addo was in his pocket - Baako
The mentor of Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr has debunked claims that the embattled president of the Ghana Football Association(GFA) , Kwesi Nyantakyi stated in the yet to be released investigative video on the rot in Ghana football that President Akufo-Addo was in his pocket.
“There is no such thing as the president is in my pocket,” he said
Speaking on Accra based Joy FM’s news analysis programme, Newsfile Saturday, Mr Baako said the phrase may have been the interpretation of the few privileged viewers of what Mr. Nyantakyi said.
He however believed that the FA president was involved in some influence peddling using the name of the president and vice president.
Mr Baako further stated that the Police CID is yet to be given a copy of the video, describing as untrue people claiming they have already watched the video.
“Some of the investigators have had the opportunity to watch it, but there is an agreement to make a package to be presented to them. They do not have it. Apart from those who have officially been given the opportunity to watch it, no one has watched it,” he stressed.
He explained that the focus of the Anas investigation was to capture the alleged rot in Ghana Football.
He added that the video centred on football administrators, referees, and footballers.
