Seasoned journalist Kweku Baako says President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi should face impeachment in order to present himself for investigations into his alleged corrupt practices.
President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reported the conduct of the GFA President to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to launch thorough investigations into the issue following the latest exposé by ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Kwesi Nyantakyi is reportedly captured on footage using the name of the President to supposedly induce some businessmen in transaction.
“The footage indicated that Kwesi Nyantakyi used the name of the President to defraud some people; constituting defrauding by false pretenses . . . “, Deputy Chief of Staff Samuel Abu Jinapor told Sports Host Dan Kweku Yeboah on Peace FM.
Making his submissions on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo‘, Kweku Baako stated that there is the need for the GFA Boss to be impeached so as to provide him with an opportunity to defend himself as his case is murky.
Mr. Baako, who is privy to the content of the Anas’ investigative footage on the rot at the Sports sector; further hinted that there are hundreds of people implicated in the investigative piece.
“He’ll have to go through an impeachment process to defend himself. Why should I come and give you what I’ve captured and tell you now react if this is you, and where were you doing it and how were you doing it? No, I won’t give you that benefit, that opportunity. It’s not necessary”, he said.
He also jumped to the defence of President Akufo-Addo for directing the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) to look into the matter ahead of the official viewing of the exposé.
Some critics have criticized the President for swiftly acting on the tape after watching it, because to them, he may have taken the shine out of the footage which is yet-to-be aired.
“The President and the Vice President were given the opportunity to watch only the portion that concerns them. Even with that, it was just for few minutes because we were looking for the substantive issue. Where the President watched, it’s not more than 5 minutes; where the Vice President watched, not more than 3 minutes meanwhile this documentary is about two hours. There are hundreds of people in there. None of them was talking about the President,” Kweku Baako said on Peace FM’s ‘kokrokoo’.
