By Clement Edward Kumsah

Anas Aremeyaw Anas, ace investigative Journalist has in a petition to FIFA listed 15 ethical breaches committed by resigned GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi.

In a petition dated June 4, 2018, Anas, listed conflict of interest, corruption, passive corruption, bribery, demanding and receiving gifts, demand for a commission, abuse of position, breach of loyalty and damaging the reputation of the football and damaging the reputation of FIFA.

Acting through his lawyers Kissi Agyabeng, Anas Aremeyaw Anas referred to several provisions of FIFA Code of Ethics from Article 13,15,19,20,21,22 and FIFA Disciplinary Code, articles 61 and 62 which the resigned FA president may have breached.

The breaches alleged by Anas were all captured in the documentary "Number 12: When misconduct and greed become the norm."

TigerEye PI investigators acting as investors proposed to GFA President Nyantakyi to sponsor the Ghana Premier League. But Kwesi Nyantakyi accepting the proposal added business opportunities in Ghana which the investor could get if he paid him $11m as appearance fees.

The right hand man of Kwesi Nyantakyi named ‘Abu’, a 31year old Regional Football Association Chairman –Northern region was approached to organize a meeting with Kwesi Nyantakyi for some investors.

The meeting was held where the investors promised to sponsor the premier league with $15,000,000.

Kwesi Nyantakyi was busily trying to convince the investors that the sponsorship should come through his private company so that he will receive 15% of the amount.

Kwesi Nyantakyi has several private companies that serve as agents anytime contracts are being brought to the GFA. He does these with Abu, his right hand man. This explains why most of the contents of GFA contracts are kept confidential.

As a result of the expose, world football governing body FIFA in response has banned the FA president who also resigned barely four hours after the ban was announced.

He has been stripped of his Executive membership at the FIFA Council and his Vice-President position at Africa football governing body CAF.
