It will be unfair to ask Nyantakyi to resign - Lawyer
Private legal practitioner, lawyer Maurice Ampaw, has added his voice to the expose from the Number 12 video premiered at the International Conference Centre yesterday [Wednesday].
The lawyer said the call on Nyantakyi to resign is immature because Anas has not shown the video to the GFA boss, the GFA as a body. So Nyantakyi cannot resign, he said.
‘’It is not yet time for Nyantakyi to resign. Anas have not submitted an official copy so how can you ask Nyantakyi to resign. Anas showed the video to those he thinks have been defamed.
He has not given an official copy to the suspected persons. So before Nyantakyi will resign, Anas will have to give GFA a copy, then GFA will copy Nyantakyi then they will have an official receipt of the video, and also look at it, call Nyantakyi to come answer and then they can tell him to reasonably resign and if he fails to resign, they will do what is needful.
For now, it is the public watching the video. Nyantakyi and GFA should get a copy so they can start an internal process. You cannot ask someone to resign because the public has watched the video.
That is unfair,’’ he said. Nana should sue Nyantakyi for defamation He was of the view that, although the president has reported the case to the CID, he can still go to court on the issue of defamation. ‘’The presidency has been defamed. Anybody whose name was mentioned by Nyantakyi has been defamed.
