President Akufo-Addo has reported Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi to the Criminal Investigations Department for alleged influence peddling.
The call for the arrest of Nyantakyi, the longest-serving GFA president, follows comments attributed to him in what our sources say are video recordings captured as part of a soon to air documentary by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas detailing corruption in Ghana football.
Nyantakyi is currently in the Republic of Madagascar on a FIFA programme.
The documentary on corruption is yet to air publicly, however, Graphic Online understands that a number of high profile individuals, including the presidency and the three ex-presidents Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama and key institutions, have had a foretaste of it.
Against popular claims that President Akufo-Addo has ordered Nyantakyi’s arrest, Information Minister Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid told Graphic Online that what the President has done was to report the GFA president to the police CID.
