Lawyer Abraham Amaliba has asked the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service to make the presidency the center of interest in its investigations involving the GFA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
In his opinion, the facts of the case as published in the media implicate both Mr Nyantakyi and the presidency hence the need for the CID to subject President Akufo-Addo and Mahamudu Bawumia to detailed investigations.
Speaking on the issue, the NDC faithful argued that the assertion that the presidency suo-motu established a prima farcie case against Mr Nayantakyi is “legally flawed” and “absurd” as the president has no prosecutorial powers to do so.
“The presidency and Kwesi Nyantakyi have been implicated, so one party can’t say it has got the license to hand one over to the police. That is the more reason why the CID must do a diligent work by investigating the presidency as well,” Lawyer Amilaba stressed.
Kwesi Nyantakyi is said to have used the name of the President, the Vice President and other senior officers of the government to garner money and lure supposed foreign investors into establishing businesses in Ghana.
President Akufo-Addo made a formal complaint at the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service on Tuesday after watching excerpts of the undercover film, titled “Number 12” which Tiger Eye PI and its investigator, Anas Aremeyaw Anas will premiere on June 6.
The President, after full consultations, felt that a prima farcie case could be established for criminal investigations to be launched into the conduct of the Kwesi Nyantakyi.
