Renowned sports broadcaster Dan Kweku Yeboah is the latest person to join the crusade for the exit of Ghana Football Association president, Kweku Nyantakyi insisting he does not care about Ghana football as most of his actions only favour his ‘selfish’ ambitions.
The President of Ghana ordered the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service to investigate the CAF 1st vice president and the FIFA Council Member over fraud allegations after the president watched the excerpts of the yet to be released Anas Aremeyaw Anas video.
Mr Nyantakyi was allegedly caught on camera using the name of the president to solicits money from investors.
In an interview with Ghanaweb, Kweku Yeboah touching on the GFA President’s recent brush with the law said the current situation only supported his appeal to have the GFA President removed.
“I remember on our way to Montenegro ahead of the 2014 World Cup, we were on the same chartered flight, myself, Dr Mustapha, the former minister, Ibrahim Sannie-Daara and the other FA members.
“I asked him why he is refusing to grant semi-autonomy to the Premier League board, so we could get some level of independence for us to be a bit professional. He said, ‘Oh you know all the country that has made the organizing body of the League a semi-autonomous body or have granted that body some independence, the body turns out to fight the FA’, so I immediately realized that it is not about the good of Ghana football, it is about him. If it would fight him, to hell with you irrespective of the benefit that we stand to gain as a country.”
the award-winning sports broadcaster described the GFA President as ”intellectually arrogant” because he does not listen or even put to practice a shred of any advice or suggestion he may receive from others especially his colleagues in the field, hence the reason for his ‘poor’ performance as GFA president.
“Interestingly, when you engage him in Private, he will seem to agree with you on everything but it is like when you leave the scene, I don’t know what he says in his head, maybe he says get out with your nonsense,” he noted.
Meanwhile, several other Ghanaians seem to have had enough of the GFA President and want to see his exit.
