Call For Kwesi Nyantakyi's Arrest: Presidency Breached Confidentiality Agreement With Anas And BBC - Kweku Baako

Since yesterday, the most trending news in Ghana is the report that the president of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo has ordered the arrest of the president of Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi for defrauding by false pretence.

Speaking on Peace FM on Wednesday, the veteran journalist stated he had already protested government’s decision to make the announcement in the manner it did without first informing the key actors and also in violation of an agreement between the parties.

According to Kweku Baako, once the president and the vice-president were mentioned by Nyantakyi as potential beneficiaries of bribe money, they had a right to know.

It was to that extent only that the portions of the investigation concerning them were presented to them for viewing.


Expressing how surprised he is, he stressed that in spite of the agreement with Anas and BBC, the presidency without informing either Tiger Eye or the BBC, went to town with the contents of the five-minute video (in respect of the president), and three-minute video (in respect of the Vice-President).

“I have complained to those who called the press conference. I protested and I gave reasons for my protest and I’m told my protests have been made known to the president,” he said.

“You will see so many things, hundreds of people involved – football administrators, political elements, referees, linesmen (assistant referees) and so on.”

Kweku Baako expressed regret that the GFA President had been caught in a web he may have helped weave.

“I like Kwesi Nyantakyi; he knows that; it is painful what has happened but one cannot cover up what appears to be a transgression.”
