Some big men in Ghana paid Anas’ Tiger Eye to ‘ruin me; they said I was too powerful – Kwesi Nyantakyi

Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) and aspirant for Ejisu Parliamentary seat president Kwesi Nyantakyi claims that the infamous “Number 12” documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Tiger Eye PI was orchestrated by some big wigs to oust him from his position

He made these remarks on Captain Smart’s Onua TV morning show ‘Maakye’ on March 2, 2024.

According to him, the prevailing narrative suggested that he was too powerful, and as a result, Anas and his crew were paid to ruin his reputation.

Drawing from an English adage that says ” you have to give a dog a bad name before you can kill it, Nyantakyi contended that Anas, did exactly that.

“Oh yes, because it was widely known that Kwesi Nyantakyi was too powerful. There is a popular English adage that says, ” you have to give a dog a bad name before you can kill. So Anas and his team couldn’t have killed me if they didn’t give me a bad name.

There are some bigwigs in Ghana who were behind it,” he said.

He claims that at the right time he will name and shame the faces behind the number 12 documentary.

“There are some bigwigs in Ghana who were behind it, but at the right time I will mention their names, because if I do right now, they will be summoned by court. I will be asked to present proof so at the right time I will name them. They know themselves; those in football know them too, “he added.

One of Tiger Eye PI’s notable investigations was the documentary titled “Number 12,” which exposed corruption and bribery in Ghanaian football.

The documentary, released in June 2018, revealed widespread corruption among football officials, referees, and administrators in the country.

In “Number 12,” Anas and his team posed as investors and agents seeking to bribe football officials to influence the outcome of matches and player selection.

The documentary captured several high-ranking officials, including the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, accepting bribes and engaging in unethical conduct.

As a result of the documentary, Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned from his position as president of the GFA and was banned from football-related activities by FIFA.

The documentary also led to the dissolution of the GFA’s executive committee and sparked widespread reforms in Ghanaian football governance.
