Ernest Owusu Bempah has said that Koku Anyidoho is not as corrupt as other National Democratic Congress, NDC party cronies.
The die-in-the-wool NPP member said that Anyidoho’s innocence was brought to bear in the way he struggled to defend claims that former president Mahama, indeed may have taken money from Kwesi Nyantakyi for campaign.
“Koku Anyidoho is not as corrupt as the others. You see, that is why he couldn’t defend the NDC any better.
“I know many NDC party cronies who have used Mr Mahama’s name on countless occasions to secure deals; some of which he himself does not even know; and I can provide evidence to that effect,” the Communications director of Ghana National Gas Company said on Okay FM on Thursday.
Asked if he can confirm that the president and Nyantakyi were friends as the embattled GFA boss claimed in the video, Mr. Owusu Bempah said, “As for Kwesi Nyantakyi, I don’t think he is President Akufo-Addo’s friend as he claims to be. The sort of things he said behind the president’s back to complete strangers betrays the friendship he claims to have with him,” he said.
He demanded that Nyantakyi be made to answer for irresponsible comments he made about the president, adding that he must be investigated thoroughly, prosecuted and jailed.
“What he did in unpardonable, and we must allow the law to deal with him; He is responsible for his own stsements and must be punished for it,” he said.
Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, president of the Ghana Football Association is said to have allegedly used President Akufo-Addo and his vice’s names to solicit for funds from supposed investors in a latest exposé by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Nana Akufo-Addo after watching excerpts of the video lodged a complaint with the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service.
Mr. Nyantakyi was subsequently picked up and it currently under investigation.
Meanwhile, the documentary Tiger Eye PI done in collaboration with BBC has been aired as promised.
Details of the much talked about film has left Ghanaians, mostly football lovers shocked over the stinking deals and bribery perpetrated by football officials in the country.
President Akufo-Addo has consequently decided to dissolve the football governing body, GFA.
