Well-known National Democratic Congress, NDC, loyalist, Nana Kwabena Bobie-Ansah has revealed that the previous Mahama led-administration was aware of Kwesi Nyantakyi’s “dubious” and “suspicious” deals but left him off the hook.
According to the journalist, the Bureau of National Investigations, BNI, and the National Security had conducted series of investigations about the president of the Ghana Football Association and found multiple evidence of wrongdoing against him.
“I do know for a fact that the BNI and the National Security conducted series of investigations about Nyantakyi.
“In fact, I didn’t know what exactly John Mahama and his government were looking out for, but I’m surprised they sat on this matter for eight years without any action. All the BNI, National Security reports about Nyantakyi were concealed by the NDC government,” Bobie-Ansah disclosed on Kasapa FM.
It emerged on Tuesday that Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is currently in Morocco boasted to potential investors that he could secure contracts without going through due process because he has “unconstrained” access to President Akufo-Addo.
In a secret audio-visual recording by Anas, titled, “Number 12”, Kwesi Nyanatakyi is heard saying, “I have President Akufo-Addo in my pocket and can secure any contract, it’s just a matter of paying”.
He adds: “Ghana is the easiest place to do business. All you have to do is pay the president $5 million and pay the vice president $3 million and we will control this country.”
Consequently, President Akufo-Addo directed the CID to arrest Kwesi Nyantakyi for alleged defrauding by false pretense.
Anas’ latest expose is set to premier at the Accra International Conference centre on 6th and 7th, the CCB auditorium in Kumasi on 9th and 10th, in Tamale on 13th and in Takoradi on 16th all in June, 2018.
It was in this direction that Bobie-Ansah advised the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to take a cue from President Akufo-Addo’s resolve to deal with corruption matters in the country.
To him, Akufo-Addo’s uncompromising and unyielding stand against corruption on the back of the several swift actions taken by the President in instances of allegations of corruption is worth commending.
“Critics will say that this is to divert attention, but at least the most important thing is that the government has taken action regarding the GFA rot. I don’t want to go into the substantive matter, until they finish the investigations in that case.
