Anas’ team was paid to bring me down because I was too powerful – Kwesi Nyantakyi alleges

Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kwesi Nyantakyi has made startling allegations, accusing investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas of being paid by influential figures within the country to dismantle his reputation.

Nyantakyi, who spoke during an interview on Onua TV, asserted that the motive behind Anas’ actions was to tarnish his image.

He claimed that the notorious ‘Number 12’ documentary, released by Anas in June 2018, was orchestrated to bring him down.

“ Anas Aremeyaw Anas was paid by some powerful people to destroy me, they wanted to destroy me but they only ended up destroying my good name,” Kwesi Nyantakyi stated.

According to Nyantakyi, he even attempted to prevent the release of the damaging video by offering $100,000 to Anas through his lawyers.

However, despite this alleged payment, Anas’ legal team deemed the amount insufficient, leading to the eventual release of the exposé.

The fallout from the ‘Number 12’ investigation was significant, leading to Nyantakyi’s resignation from his roles at the GFA, CAF, and FIFA, as well as a subsequent 15-year ban from football.

Nyantakyi further disclosed that he later sought a refund for the money he had paid, receiving it in instalments after persistent requests.

The revelations made by Nyantakyi have reignited discussions about corruption in sports and governance in Ghana, prompting calls for further scrutiny into the allegations he has raised against Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
