Having been openly exposed and rebuked vehemently from all sides in the ‘Number 12’ video, the most ‘honorable’ thing for the FA Boss was resigning if he indeed had any hopes of preserving if any, the ‘last bit of honor’ he may have in the eyes of Ghanaians, Government’s spokesperson on Governance and Legal Affairs, Herbert Krapa has said.
Resigned Ghana Football Association Boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi was captured in the latest investigative piece of ace journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, among other things, taking an amount of $65 million from investors to influence some matches. He also used the names of President, Akufo-Addo and Vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia under false pretence to influence transactions between investors.
He has since the screening, received massive backlash from various sections of the public, many calling for his resignation. He subsequently apologized in a released statement, to the President of Ghana and Ghanaians and resigned.
His apology and resignation came after the government announced a dissolution of the Ghana Football Association and hours after FIFA banned the embattled football president for 90 days.
Speaking on CitiTV’s ‘Big Issue’, Mr Krapa though admitted the fact that the embattled FA Boss practically had no choice because he had been banned from engaging in any football-related activities, his ultimate decision to resign was the best choice as it would at least be remembered in the history books that he resigned.
“Mr Nyantakyi’s resignation if there was any last honour left for him to hold on to, that was it and he’s resigned, I think it was just the honourable thing to do. Much Ado about nothing or not, for the record, he at least resigned.”, he said.
